Leeds United have been turned down by their top target Andoni Iraola to replace sacked boss Jesse Marsch as the Premier League side face further frustration in their attempts to appoint a new manager. The Yorkshire outfit are yet to find a replacement for the American and have been rejected by another disciple of former boss Marcelo Bielsa as their search continues.

It comes after Leeds had approached West Brom about the possibility of bringing Carlos Corberan, who previously worked under Bielsa as their Under-23s coach, to take over from Marsch after the American was sacked on Monday.

However, the Spaniard opted to remain with the Championship club and even signed a new contract in the process, leaving Leeds to focus on the next name on their shortlist.

Leeds had prioritised Rayo Vallecano boss Iraola as their top target after Corberan turned them down, and sporting director Victor Orta flew in for talks with the La Liga club on Wednesday to discuss terms. But it seems their attempts to lure Iraola to Elland Road have ended in failure, according to reports in Spain.
