Former Ipswich Town boss Paul Hurst looks set for a return to management with League Two Bradford City.
Hurst made history as the shortest-tenured Town boss ever when he was sacked with the Blues bottom of the Championship in October 2018, after just five months in charge.
He went on to last just eight months at Scunthorpe, but is now the favourite to take over at Bradford, who sit 21st in League Two.
Hurst, 46, is said to be very keen to get back into management and is understood to have held talks about the vacancy at Valley Parade.
Before his calamitous Town reign, Hurst led Shrewsbury to the League One play-off final and was considered one of the brightest managerial prospects in the country.
Former Middlesbrough boss Jonathan Woodgate and ex-Southend manager Sol Campbell are among the other names being linked to Bradford.
