'If It's Football, It's Vital'

LUFC Keith Hill not ruling out Leeds post

Barnsley boss Keith Hill refused to rule himself out of the running for the vacant Leeds United job but he felt that the current caretaker boss Neil Redfearn would get the job.

Hill is in his first season at Barnsley after guiding League One side Rochdale to their first promotion since 1974 in 2010 and establishing the side in League One with a ninth placed finish.

The 42 year old says it is brilliant to be linked with the Leeds post and whilst refusing to rule himself out he says he is happy at Barnsley and he thinks Neil Redfearn is in pole position for the job.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Hill said, "To be linked with Leeds is brilliant with respect to myself and it shows that people are taking note of what I am doing at Barnsley on limited resources.

"To be perfectly honest, somebody once said to me 'you`re only ever three games away from the sack as a manager` so I would never rule anything out.

"I can`t predict what is going to happen in the future but I am settled at Barnsley and I am doing a good job here. Neil Redfearn is doing great at Leeds and it is probably his job."


Hill is currently amongst the favourites for the job and is as short as 6/1 with Sky Bet and Stan James to take over from Simon Grayson.

He has spent just over five years in football management since taking over at Rochdale in December 2006. His playing career saw him play for Blackburn Rovers, Plymouth Argyle, Rochdale, Cheltenham Town Wrexham and Morecambe in a sixteen year playing career before retiring in 2003.

Hill has already masterminded a double over Leeds this season. Barnsley won 2-1 at Elland Road towards the end of November before winning the return game at Oakwell 4-1 on New Year`s Eve.

Leeds chairman Ken Bates has told Neil Redfearn that he will be in charge until at least the Doncaster Rovers game on February 18th to stake his claim for the job on a permanent basis.
