Former England boss Steve McClaren is the shock name inline to be Huddersfield Town’s new director of football.
McClaren could be the surprise replacement for Stuart Webber who is expected to confirm a move to Norwich City soon.
The former FC Twente boss was apparently a guest at Town’s 3-0 win against Norwich on Wednesday night.
McClaren is known mostly for his work on the training ground, but now faces the possibility of moving upstairs to the boardroom.
He was linked with the briefly vacant Middlesbrough job after Aitor Karanka was sacked, following his own departure from Derby County.
However, McClaren ruled himself out of a return to the Premier League relegation battlers.
He said: “I’ve got family now in Yarm, which is very near Middlesbrough, and I’ve got to say, it’s the only place in England I can go and have a nice quiet cup of coffee, not get pestered, and actually just get treated like a normal human being.”
