Former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is currently second in the running to succeed Chris Wilder as head coach at Sheffield United.
Caretaker boss Paul Heckingbottom has been made favourite to take on the role on a permanent basis but, after a 5-0 defeat to Leicester yesterday, that doesn’t seem that likely at the moment, unless results change between now and May.
Whether Lampard would be interested in taking over at Bramall Lane, though, it is up for debate. He has experience of managing in the Championship with Derby County, guiding them to the playoff final in 2019. However, he may well have his sights set higher on another job in the top flight.
In terms of other names that are currently in the frame for the position. Former Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe, ex-Celtic boss Neil Lennon, Barnsley manager Valerian Ismael and ex-Aberdeen head coach Derek McInnes have all been suggested as possible contenders.
