The Owls have taken their time to find the right candidate, as they seek out a capable manager to help them push towards promotion this season. Here's who Sky Bet reckon are the current front-runners for the job...

Odds: 25/1 - It doesn't look any chance of the Wolves assistant manager getting the job, even though Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino publicly backed him for it. Whatever worth that may have...(Photo by Matthew Lewis/Getty Images)
Odds: 25/1. The Owls legend has made it known he's keen on the job, and he's currently managing the Sweden U21 team. His odds fairly are long, mind. (Photo credit: MICHAL CIZEK/AFP/Getty Images)
