Leeds United are looking for a new manager, and several big names have been mentioned as options. Among the many name, one is pretty familiar with their fans, and that is club legend Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
Recently Jaap Stam’s agent ruled out the possibility of his client joining Leeds United and reports claim that the chances of another Dutch legend landing at Elland Road are also slim.

Yorkshire Sport claim that the rumors regarding Hasselbaink are not relevant and that they are far away from true. This media is relying on sources from within the club from Leeds.
Hasselbaink was a member of the Peacocks from 1997 until 1999, and during that time, he scored 34 goals in 69 appearances. In the 1998-99 season, the former member of Dutch national team won the Premier League Golden Boot, along with Dwight Yorke, as they both scored 18 times in that campaign.
Leeds fans were delighted to hear that Hasselbaink might be the possible solution for Garry Monk’s replacement, but unfortunately, it seems that this deal isn’t going to happen.
