Queens Park Rangers

Sherwood closing in on managerial return

12th April 2019, 14:55 by Warren Ashurst

Queens Park Rangers are reportedly ready to hold talks with Tim Sherwood next week over their vacant managerial position.

Sherwood has been out of work since being sacked by Aston Villa in 2015 but is understood to be the QPR board's first-choice option to succeed Steve McClaren at Loftus Road.

The R's, who are currently 18th in the Championship and six points above the relegation zone, have been without a permanent manager since the dismissal of McClaren earlier this month.

The likes of Gary Rowett, Mark Warburton and Michael Appleton have been linked with the vacancy in the last two weeks although Sherwood is now believed to be at the top of the list of candidates.

The 50-year-old, who has been working as a TV pundit, has close connections with QPR director of football Les Ferdinand, who he played in the same squad with at Tottenham.
