Craig Bellamy is one of the players who is being linked with the job at Oxford United.
While Oxford are not the type of club that would normally attract a top name as manager, their new owner Sumrith Thanakarnjanasuth is determined to make a splash.
He says that Bellamy is one of four people who will be interviewed for the manager's position before a final decision is made.
Oxford United are currently being managed by Derek Fazackerley on a temporary basis, following the January sacking of former manger Pep Clotet.
The side currently plays in League One.
