Leeds are set to do all they can to keep hold of manager Marcelo Bielsa after last night's Sky Bet Championship play-off semi-final defeat to Derby.
The Elland Road club brought a 1-0 aggregate lead into the game, and scored first on the night through Stuart Dallas.
But Derby weren't to be denied, and a brace from Jack Marriott off the bench saw them win 4-2 to book a place with Aston Villa in the final at Wembley.
Leeds had been top of the Championship in March, but they lost three games in April to fall out of the top two. Bielsa could not hide his disappointment after last night's match, but said he would listen to the club's proposals for next season.
"It's not as you can imagine convenient to talk about this point right now," the Argentinian said. "Anyway, the process and you know about this process, that's why I'm talking about it, if the club offers me the possibility to carry on I will listen to this proposal."
Leeds spurned chances to take a commanding aggregate lead in the first half and failed to convert their openings in the second period - a season-long theme that has caught up with them.
"It's a painful situation and we're all disappointed," Bielsa said. "In the first half we should have finished with one or two goals more and in the second half it was a game that broke immediately.
"The chances of the opponent ended in goals and our's not."
But Bielsa had no complaints about his players, adding: "What they have offered to the club during this season will be valued with the time.
"The fact that we couldn't reach goals that were so close leaves a feeling of disappointment, but you can have another perspective about it."
