Wise is new boss

Wise is new boss

As expected Dennis Wise was confirmed as the new manager today. Just hours before a league cup tie with Southend.

Wise has been to the Thorp Arch training ground but will not be in charge for tonights game.

The former England midfielder, 39, is joined at Elland Road by assistant coach Gus Poyet after the pair linked up successfully at former club Swindon.

A statement on the Leeds website said: 'A compensation package has been agreed between the two clubs.

'Swindon Town have placed on record their thanks to Leeds United for the professional manner they have made their approaches.'

Wise and Poyet will officially take up their posts on Wednesday, while goalkeeping coach Andrew Beasley has also joined the club's staff.

A Swindon statement read: 'Although we are all disappointed that the duo's tenure at the club turned out to be brief, the board would like to thank Dennis and Gus for steering the team to its current League Two position.

'We are confident that the squad they have assembled will continue to improve and generate further success for the club.

'Dennis and Gus were both offered improvements to their Swindon contracts, but they felt that the opportunity to manage at a higher level was the best move for both their careers and their families at this time.'
