Sheffield Wednesday are hoping to appoint a new manager by the end of the international break, according to The Athletic.
The Owls are working tirelessly to find a replacement for Garry Monk who was sacked from his position on Monday evening.
Dejphon Chansiri made the tough call after a poor start to the new season.
After being handed a 12-point deduction coming into the campaign for breaching spending rules, Wednesday face an uphill battle to move themselves up the table.
Three wins and three draws has left them sitting in 23rd place in the table – a position that ensures that they’re very much in the relegation mix at this early stage.
While this has to be kept in context with the points deduction, it’s worth noting that they would only be in 21st position if they had started at ground zero like the rest of that division.

As a result Chansiri is looking to make a change with the Owls being linked with the likes of Tony Pulis, Sol Campbell, Paul Cook and Ryan Lowe.
However a fresh report from The Athletic claims that the Owls have been ‘inundated’ with applications for the post with a final decision to be made before next weekend’s game with Preston North End.
It’s set to be a big week for Sheffield Wednesday.
With their place in the Championship under real threat on current form it was inevitable that a change would have to be made.
The task now is to ensure that they get the right man to fulfil the objective of pulling away from the relegation zone.
Now isn’t a time for exciting appointments who will play free-flowing attacking football; instead the focus has to be on grinding out positive results.
Things need to improve for the Owls and quickly, and that’s why is crucial that a new boss is in place before the clash with Preston next week.
