Sheffield Wednesday remain without a permanent manager. Here is an updated five potential candidates for the Owls job-

Lee Bullen- The current caretaker remains the bookies favourite for the full-time role. He has overseen three wins from five games so far in this Championship season and may have done enough to bag himself the job.

Alex Neil- The Preston North End boss has emerged as a candidate for Wednesday but it is unlikely he would switch to a fellow Championship side at this stage of the new campaign. He has done an impressive job with the Lilywhites and may want to carry on his work at Deepdale.

Gary Rowett- He remains an option for the Owls’ board having been available since he was sacked by Stoke City in January. The 45-year-old has also previously managed Burton Albion, Birmingham City and Derby County.

Sol Campbell- The ex-Arsenal and England defender’s name has been linked with the position at Hillsborough after he left Macclesfield Town recently. He guided the Silkmen to safety in League Two last season and is keen to prove himself at a higher level but maybe the Championship is too high for him at this moment in time.

Roland Nilsson- He played over 150 games for the Owls in his playing days and helped them win the League Cup in 1991. The 55-year-old is currently the manager of Sweden Under-21’s and has also managed the likes of Coventry City, GAIS, Malmo and FC Copenhagen in the past.
