Heckingbottom, who has been placed in temporary charge at Bramall Lane until the end of the season following Chris Wilder’s departure, was predecessor to Marcelo Bielsa at the Whites after a successful spell in charge of Barnsley.

The rock-bottom Blades have lost both matches since he took charge, but put in an improved performance last time out against Chelsea, following a 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Leicester City the day after Wilder officially left the club.

Meanwhile, Leeds sit in eleventh place on 39 points so far in their first season back in the top flight.
