Steve Cotterill was in the news recently after leaving Notts County amidst rumours that a number of Championship clubs were interested in his services.
Having already turned down the job at Coventry whilst still at County, Cotterill was then strongly linked with the manager's role at newly relegated and financially-stricken, Portsmouth following the resignation of Avram Grant .
Pompey administrator, Andrew Andronikou though threw cold water on the speculation. He said on the day that Cotterill left Meadow Lane.
'We are working through the process to find a new manager. The most I can say is that we hope to reach a decision at the end of next week. Whatever Steve's done today — you can put two and two together but you won't get the right sum. I believe he might be talking to a few different clubs.'
Alan Nixon though today in the Mirror suggests Cotterill has now become one of the favourites to replace Roy Keane at Ipswich.
Keane has been under a lot of pressure in his first full season at Portman Road. The Tractor Boys got off to a very poor start and looked like potential relegation candidates for long spells last season. The former Sunderland manager though dug deep and pulled Ipswich clear of the drop zone with the club eventually finishing in 15th spot.
There are rumours though that the Suffolk club are now looking to replace Keane.
Nixon writes that Tony Mowbray and Steve Cotterill are now in the frame to take his job.
Ipswich are understood to be now making behind-the-scenes enquiries about Cotterill
Cotterill, according to Nixon also has some high-profile backers who have recommended him and think he would be an ideal replacement for Keane.
