Taylor left the Stadium of Light last August to take up the role of loans manager at Leeds.

And he now has a new interim role under the new head coach Jesse Marsch, who has confirmed his backroom team.

A Leeds statement read: “Finally, Jesse will be supported by our current Under-23s Head Coach Mark Jackson who will move up to first team duties. Jackson is a popular figure at Elland Road and has overseen the development of various players who are now involved with the first team squad.
