Hull City remain in the hunt for a new manager to replace Nigel Adkins.

Twelve days have passed since it was announced Adkins would be leaving his post. It is believed that interviews have been taking place this week to find his successor.

Doncaster Rovers boss Grant McCann remains the bookies’ favourite. However, the League One side won’t welcome any approach for the 39-year-old, as reported by the Yorkshire Post.

Ex-Portsmouth, Blackpool and Oxford United manager Michael Appleton has been heavily linked with the Tigers’ job. He is looking to get back into the dugout after recent coaching roles at Leicester City and West Bromwich Albion.

Macclesfield Town’s Sol Campbell is the third favourite and has seen his odds significantly drop over recent days. The former Arsenal defender is an option but Hull may have reservations over going for someone so inexperienced.

Lincoln City boss Danny Cowley was the initial reported top target for Hull after Adkins’ departure but it is very unlikely he will be leaving Sincil Bank.

Garry Monk, who was sacked by Birmingham City yesterday, has been linked with the Tigers in the past and could come into contention now. There are also plenty of available managers out there such as Darren Moore, Steve McClaren and Simon Grayson who may get interviewed.

Tony Pennock will lead the club into pre-season as it stands. With the search for Adkins’ successor ongoing, could the Welshman be in with a shout of the full-time job the longer it drags on?
