Leeds United could appoint a replacement for sacked manager Thomas Christiansen within 24 hours.
Leeds relieved Christiansen of his duties on Sunday following a 4-1 defeat at home to Cardiff on Saturday - their sixth Championship game in a row without a win - with the club 10th in the Championship.
Former Leeds manager Simon Grayson has been linked with a return to the club, and is available to take over immediately.
Steve McClaren was in attendance for Saturday's match, although Sky Sports News understands the 56-year-old is not under consideration.
Former Watford and Hull manager Marco Silva has also been mentioned and has admirers within Elland Road, though it is understood the chances of persuading him to take on a Championship club are slim.
Barnsley manager Paul Heckingbottom is seen as a coach who would fit into the model of Leeds United, and is another potential candidate for the role.
