Former West Brom boss Tony Pulis has been tipped to take this job after Middlesbrough exit
Former West Brom head coach Tony Pulis is being considered for the vacancy at Sheffield Wednesday.
The Owls are on the look-out for a new boss after losing Steve Bruce and his staff in acrimonious circumstances to Newcastle United earlier this week.
Bruce and his staff forced through a move to St James’s Park – Bruce’s boyhood club – by handing in resignations at Hillsborough, where they’d only arrived midway through last season.
Pulis, meanwhile, left Middlesbrough at the end of the season after 18 months at the Riverside.

Boro missed out on a play-off place on the final day of the season after Derby beat West Brom to claim sixth spot.
Pulis, formerly of Stoke and Crystal Palace, is now waiting for his next challenge and could come in the form of Wednesday.
The 61-year-old is a potential target for the Championship Owls, who could offer him an immediate return to football should he wish to do so.
The Welshman isn’t at the top of the bookies’ list, though – that recognition goes to his compatriot Chris Coleman.
Pulis managed Albion from January 2015 until November 2017, the entirety of that time with the club in the Premier League.
Wednesday coach Lee Bullen and former Birmingham City boss Gary Rowett are also ahead of Pulis in the current bookies’ market.
