LEEDS, England (AP) - Second tier English club Leeds has hired Neil Redfearn as its fourth permanent manager in five months, with owner Massimo Cellino having sacked the previous one after only 32 days.

Redfearn has signed as 12-month rolling contract.

Cellino has fired three managers since buying the club in April, with Darko Milanic becoming the third when his deal was terminated after his first six games were winless. Redfearn was caretaker manager at Leeds earlier this season, but was initially overlooked for the permanent job despite leading the club to 10 points from a possible 12.

Cellino has a reputation for relentlessly sacking managers, previously using 36 in 20 years as owner of Italian club Cagliari. Leeds is currently 18th out of 24 teams in England’s second division.
