Sheffield Wednesday are in talks with at least three managers to replace Garry Monk. Among the managers is former Middlesbrough manager Tony Pulis. Monk, 41, was sacked by the Owls on Monday after 14 months in charge having won only two of the last 12 games.
Pulis guided Stoke City to the Premier League in 2008. He has been out of work since leaving Boro in May 2019. The Welshman has managed nine teams across the top four divisions in England in a 28-year managerial career.
Paul Cook and ex-Watford manager Nigel Pearson are among the other favoured candidates to replace Monk.
Tony Pulis managed Swansea City, Leeds United, Birmingham City and Middlesbrough in his career. Sheffield Wednesday is looking at hiring him. Wednesday, who have had six points deducted for breaking EFL spending rules, moved off the bottom of the table on Saturday after a goalless draw at home to Millwall.
