Staunton takes post at Leeds.

LEEDS have named Steve Staunton as assistant manager to Gary McAllister.

The former Republic of Ireland boss met the Elland Road squad at their Thorp Arch training ground before signing a contract until the end of the season.

He left his role as Republic boss in October after an unsuccessful Euro 2008 qualifying campaign.

He told the Leeds website: "It's a great opportunity to work at a big club with a great manager and learn the ropes from someone else on the inside."

Staunton, who won 102 international caps for the Republic, has previously worked with McAllister at Coventry.

Former Liverpool player and Bolton boss Sammy Lee has also been linked with a place on the coaching staff at Town's League I rivals.
