According to The London Evening Standard, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is in contention for the vacant managerial position at Charlton Athletic.
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was recently sacked by Championship club and Charlton’s London neighbours Queens Park Rangers.
Charlton also parted ways with their manager recently as they sacked Russell Slade after just 16 games in charge.
The Addicks are 15th in League One at the moment and have been linked with Nigel Adkins and Chris O’Loughlin.
However the London Evening Standard understand that Chris O’Loughlin will be offered a coaching role at the club rather than the first team manager position.
O’Loughlin will be in the dugout for this weekend’s clash with Port Vale alongside former Leyton Orient assistant Kevin Nugent.
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is the latest name to appear on Charlton’s managerial wishlist and he is now available after QPR sacked him for a combination of football style and lacklustre results.
The Dutchman spent a spell at The Valley as a player back in the 2006/07 season and could possibly return as a manager.
Hasselbaink impressed in his managerial role at Burton Albion the year before he joined QPR, guiding the Brewers to promotion from League Two and then leaving them at the top of League One and having built the foundations for promotion.
