Milanic first emerged as a candidate for the job at the Elland Road club towards the middle of this last week, around the time that the side won 3-1 away from home against Bournemouth.
Bournemouth was caretaker coach Neil Redfearn’s third game in charge, which saw him complete an undefeated trio of games. The win was the first time that the Yorkshire club have won away from home in mid week since 2011.
Milanic is now expected to negotiate the terms of his departure from Sturm Graz before taking the Leeds job.
Sturm Graz, a side from the Austrian Bundesliga, appointed Milanic last summer, and they finished fifth in the league under him.
He is expected to take charge of the club’s tie this weekend before moving to Leeds.
