Betting has been suspended on Tony Pulis replacing Garry Monk at Sheffield Wednesday – but reports still link Sven-Goran Eriksson and Sol Campbell with the vacancy.
Pulis is understood to have been in advanced talks with Wednesday in what would be his first managerial job since leaving Middlesbrough in the summer of 2019.
Plymouth boss Ryan Lowe and Campbell continue to be mentioned while Eriksson, who had been reportedly interested before Monk took charge, emerged last night as a late contender.
Owner Dejphon Chansiri told TalkSPORT: “I want to do the best thing for the club. It’s an amazing club.
“We need time to think about it, (but) I think as soon as possible.”
He added: “Actually we’ve had many managers who have sent offers.
“So we need to look at it and we’ll see who is the best because every manager has some experience and ability.
“But I can choose just one manager. I try to choose the best that I can at this moment.”
The Athletic report: “Tony Pulis and his representatives are already in advanced talks with the Hillsborough club, while Sol Campbell is also on the shortlist. But Eriksson, 72, has also shown his interest and contact has been made with Wednesday as he looks for one more challenge in English football.”
Wednesday fans have been giving their verdicts on two-time Stoke City chief Pulis to our colleagues at YorkshireLive.
One fan said: “Proven manager. We need results and although I want to watch entertaining football, we need points on the board.
“Howard Wilkinson played long ball. No one would complain about having him back!”
Another wrote: “Most experienced at Championship level. I’m not a fan of his style of play, but we need to get back to winning football games.”
Another added: “This year has got to be about surviving after the awful start we’ve had. His teams have always been solid defensively too, something which Wednesday need at the moment.”
