Oldham Athletic’s caretaker boss Dean Holden is a surprise managerial target for Peterborough United, reports the Daily Mail.
35-year-old Holden, a former Peterborough player, was handed the reigns at Boundary Park until the end of the season in February after Lee Johnson left to take over at Barnsley.
It has been a disappointing season for the Latics as they flirted with relegation during March but are now safe with one game of the season still to play.
Holden spent three years as a player at Oldham but may find it hard to turn down the prospects at Peterborough.
Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony sacked Darren Ferguson earlier this season and installed Dave Robertson as caretaker until the end of the campaign.
But MacAnthony has been critical of his side’s inconsistency on social media site Twitter in recent months and may not stick with Robertson beyond end of the season.
Peterborough are currently ninth in Sky Bet League One, having accumulated 62 points from 45 matches.
