EX-WREXHAM manager Brian Little has turned down the opportunity to join the coaching staff at Leeds United.
Little, who left Wrexham in October, had been approached to join Leeds as a coach under manager Simon Grayson.
The Leeds boss was a player for Little during his time as manager of Leicester City.
“Simon has spoken to me, but having a young family means the location and the travelling involved isn’t ideal for me,” said Little, who was replaced at Wrexham by Dean Saunders.
“I’d have loved to work with Simon Grayson and I think he has the potential to become a great manager.”
Little added: “I have a young family in the midlands so I think it suits me to be around there at the moment.
“Simon and I have spoken on and off for years and years now and I wish him every success.
“But at the moment with the location of Leeds and my location, it would involve a 240-mile round trip every day, which just isn’t ideal.”
Following Little’s decision to turn down the offer it is believed former Leeds defender Glynn Snodin is now the favourite for the vacant coaching role at Elland Road.
Grayson has revealed he has agreed a deal in principle with a coach currently on gardening leaving from a Premier League club.
Snodin, 48, is in exactly that position currently after leaving his job at West Ham United following the departure of manager Alan Curbishley.
