The Addicks slipped back into League One this season after a miserable campaign that saw former boss Jose Riga both return and leave once more after failing to keep them up.

On the lookout for a new boss to steady the ship amid mounting fan frustration, they will now discuss the vacancy with Wilder and his assistant coach Alan Knill.

The pair have presided over a whirlwind season with the Cobblers, who were under intense pressure with their finances though have since gone on to win League Two.

Bolton Wanderers were also believed to be interested in the 48-year old, though there is an exciting project in place at Sixfields.

With wealthy new investment and a promotion winning side, they look well placed for next season already.

It is a stark contrast to the situation at the Valley, where fan demonstrations persist and the club tumbling from the Championship.

Would Wilder steady the ship at Chartlon? Why would he want to leave Northampton?
