ERIK TEN HAG’S sacked Ajax successor Alfred Schreuder is reportedly OUT of the running to take charge at Leeds.
The former Hoffenheim and Club Brugge boss was spotted at Elland Road on Sunday as the hosts lost 2-0 to Ten Hag’s Manchester United.
It sparked talk that Schreuder was in line to replace Jesse Marsch following the American’s exit this month.
But The Athletic claims there will be no immediate return to football for Schreuder, who was himself sacked by Ajax in January.
Adding that a deal “was not close” despite talks being held after the United match, Schreuder has now returned to Holland following yesterday’s visit.
And Leeds will press on in their efforts to find a new long-term gaffer before Saturday's six-pointer against fellow strugglers Everton.

And they were then rebuffed in their efforts to poach highly-rated Andoni Iraola from flying LaLiga minnows Rayo Vallecano.
But three was not the magic number when Leeds were also snubbed by Arnie Slot on Friday.

The Feyenoord boss confirmed: “It is true that I will stay with Feyenoord, I can say that with this one. That is clear, fans do not have to be afraid.
"It was a compliment that a club like Leeds was interested, but we are doing something great with Feyenoord.
"We are in a great position in the league, the cup and Europe. There is no disappointment. It's certainly not a punishment to stay here."
