Salford boss Ian Watson may have thrown his name into the ring for the vacant job at Leeds.
The Rhinos are still looking for a new head coach following the sacking of David Furner at the start of May.
And three weeks on from his departure, it seems the club are keen to appoint a new coach within the coming days.
Interim boss Richard Agar has failed to oversee a major improvement in on-field performance and director of rugby Kevin Sinfield is weighing up a number of candidates.
One of those candidates is believed to be Watson and when questioned about the Leeds job at Magic Weekend, the 42-year-old refused to rule himself out of the running.
“I love coaching, it’s what I want to do, wherever that is,” he said. “I want to test myself at the highest level and I want to do that over here and abroad as well if I can.
“I’m always chasing things, I’m always accepting things as a challenge and I want to see how far I can go.
“I want to see how far I can get teams to go as well, and whatever comes off the back of that will come in time hopefully.
“But I love what I’m doing at Salford. It’s tough, but I enjoy the challenge, and I’d rather be doing it than not doing it.”
