Former Reading manager McDermott is the bookies' favourite for the vacant post at Elland Road. The 51-year-old was controversially relieved of his duties at Reading in March following a successful 13 year association with the Berkshire outfit, in which time he was promoted from chief scout to first-team manager in 2009 following the departure of Brendan Rodgers. McDermott was immensely popular with fans at the Madejski Stadium and immediately steered the Royals clear of relegation before guiding the club to a playoff final and a Championship title in consecutive seasons.
