Preston North End manager Ryan Lowe potentially on list to take over at Leeds United - Sky Sports

Preston North End manager Ryan Lowe is reportedly potentially on the list to take over at Leeds United in the future with Jesse Marsch currently at the helm.

According to Sky Sports commentator Gary Weaver, Victor Orta is a big admirer of the 43-year-old Liverpool-born boss.

His attacking brand of football believes to have caught the eye of the Leeds director of football, claims the broadcaster.

Speaking during the Preston v Burnley clash in the Championship on 13 September on Sky Sports, Weaver said in the 65th minute, “He does have an attacking brand of football as we’ve mentioned and it’s been noticed elsewhere.

“A big fan of his is Victor Orta, the sporting director at Leeds United, he’s taken some interest in what Ryan Lowe does, and he may be on a list of future potential Leeds United managers at Elland Road.”

It’s always nice to have backups ready as one can never predict what happens next in the beautiful game.

Nobody would’ve thought that Leeds would sack Marcelo Bielsa and replace him so quickly with Marsch, but that’s precisely what happened.

It does make sense to have a replacement waiting in case Marsch goes on a bad run and gets sacked or gets an offer he finds too hard to turn down.

However, Lowe does not have the credentials yet to manage a Premier League club and we will be very surprised if he’s chosen to replace Marsch.

Thus far, he’s managed Bury and Plymouth Argyle and Preston is his first job in the second tier.

He’s not got any top flight experience yet which would make the task of managing Leeds an extremely daunting one.

He surely is someone on the rise and has been lauded for his “incredible” work at Plymouth, but is yet to check many boxes before he can consider himself a frontrunner for the Elland Road hot seat.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites have reached an agreement to sign a left-back, according to his agent.
