LEEDS UNITED are set to ap­point the Slove­nian Darko Mi­lanic as their new man­ager.

Mi­lanic has se­cured his re­lease from the Aus­trian club Sturm Graz and is due to sign a deal at El­land Road.

He will re­place David Hock­day who was sacked after just six games in charge.

Mi­lanic, 46, is set to ar­rive in Eng­land to­day to agree his deal with Leeds’ owner Mas­simo Cellino.

He is be­lieved to have bought out his con­trat at Sturm Graz so he can move to Eng­land.

Mi­lanic was in charge at Sturm Graz for a year. Prior to that he has five sea­sons at the Slove­nian side Mari­bor and won nine tro­phies.
