Ex-Man United defender Phil Neville being considered by Championship side Sheffield Wednesday

Former Manchester United defender Phill Neville is being considered by English Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.

The club parted ways with manager Garry Monk on Monday and already in the market for a replacement with former Arsenal defender Sol Campbell also under consideration according to reports from Sky Sports.

Neville is still in charge of the England national women’s team but announced in April, that he would not be renewing his contract with the FA when it expires in July next year and there are reports that he is keen in returning to club football.

Campbell on the other hand is currently available after leaving his job as Southend manager in June. He took charge in October 2019 but could not save the Shrimpers from relegation to League Two when the season was ended prematurely by the coronavirus pandemic.

An appointment for Neville would mean that he will have to forego his role as manager of Great Britain's women at the Tokyo Olympics next year.

But despite interest from the two, former Wigan boss Paul Cook is one of the early favourites for the Wednesday job alongside former Stoke City manager Tony Pulis with Nigel Pearson being the other manager who has been linked with the job.

Monk had been in charge of Wednesday for just over a year and led the to a 16th placed last season but leaves them languishing at position 23 on the log.
