Who next as Huddersfield hunt for David Wagner’s successor?

Huddersfield have announced the departure of manager David Wagner by mutual consent.

The Terriers sit bottom of the Premier League having picked up just two wins all season.

Here, Press Association Sport looks at some of the contenders to replace Wagner.

Sam Allardyce

A predictable name in the frame, and should Huddersfield have any hopes of climbing away from trouble then Allardyce is the great-escape specialist. The former England boss has been out of work since being sacked by Everton last summer, largely due to an unpopular style of play, but that will not be as much of an issue at the Yorkshire club.

David Moyes

Another of the usual suspects, former Everton and Manchester United boss Moyes is ready for a return to the dugout after leaving West Ham at the end of last season. The Scot was recently linked with the vacant role at Stoke that was eventually filled by Nathan Jones.

Carlos Carvalhal

The Portuguese coach has been out of work since leaving Swansea at the end of last season, having narrowly failed to save them from relegation. Carvalhal, who also managed Sheffield Wednesday, has made no secret of his wish to manage in England again and his character and personality could provide the ‘new manager bounce’ Huddersfield need.

Mark Hudson

Town coach Hudson has the chance to throw his name firmly into the hat after being put in temporary charge. The job interview will be a tough one, though, as Huddersfield host champions Manchester City on Sunday. But if he pulls off a shock win the former Crystal Palace midfielder will be hard to ignore.

Slavisa Jokanovic

Having already been sacked by one relegation-threatened team, the former Fulham boss seems an unlikely choice to manage another. But Jokanovic is a canny coach who guided both the Cottagers and Watford to promotion, and he would certainly be a candidate should the Terriers end up in the Championship.
