Wednesday chairman Milan Mandaric has revealed that he currently has a shortlist of four potential new managers following the sacking of Alan Irvine

Mandaric has moved quickly to try and get a replacement for the departing Irvine and could even have a new man in place before this Saturday’s npower League One clash against MK Dons at Hillsborough.

It was announced that Irvine has left his post today following a meeting with Mandaric last night.

It’s believed that the Owls chairman has already approached some managers who are currently in jobs to take the vacant position at S6.

Notts County boss Paul Ince is one name linked with a move to Wednesday.

Mandaric tried to get Ince as his manager at Leicester City before the former Manchester United player was offered the chance to manage in the Barclays Premier League with Blackburn Rovers.

Gary Megson, who was manager of the Foxes before leaving for Bolton Wanderers, is also being mentioned as Irvine’s possible replacement.

Rob Kelly and Billy Barr have been put in temporary control of first team affairs at the club.
