    Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa has held talks with the club over a new contract and is "not considering alternatives."

    But he added: "I can't not say I have revised with the authorities of the club all the variables that means to carry on.

    "I am not considering any alternative option. I am being sincere, I do not have alternative options."
