Several Championship managers are under consideration by West Ham United to succeed Gianfranco Zola.

The Daily Mail says a quartet of successful managers from the Championship - Dave Jones (Cardiff), Nigel Pearson (Leicester), Ian Holloway (Blackpool) and Paulo Sousa (Swansea) are all under consideration.

Peter Reid, currently No 2 to Tony Pulis at Stoke, wants to return to management and is being actively considered.
