Former Blackpool coach Steve Thompson has been suspended from his job at Leeds United.
Neil Redfearn’s number two was effectively removed from his role on Thursday morning amid signs of fresh unrest at Elland Road.
The former Blackpool coach has been in post for just 19 games but his future and that of Leeds’ head coach Redfearn have been the subject of heavy speculation recently.
Both men held contracts running to the end of this season and were awaiting offers of new deals.
Thompson is understood to have been told that the club do not plan to take up an option to renew his contract
