Sky Bet League Two side Burton Albion have been searching for a new boss to take the helm at the club, since former manager Gary Rowett left to manage Birmingham City earlier this month.

Hasselbaink, 42, has only one experience of managing a club after taking charge of Royal Antwerp in Belgium, however he decided to leave the club in search of something new.

The former striker is best known for his spell at Chelsea between 2000-2004, where he amassed 69 goals from 139 appearances for the Blues.

The 42-year-old does have some experience with helping take charge of a Football League side, after he had a spell as first-team coach at Championship outfit Nottingham Forest.
