Former Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish is being linked with the Wolves job.

The Daily Mail says McLeish has emerged as a surprise contender for the Wolves manager's job if Stale Solbakken fails to reverse the club's fortunes.

The former Scotland, Birmingham and Aston Villa manager was at last week's home game with Nottingham Forest.

McLeish, who has been out of work since being sacked by Villa in May, was spotted in the directors' box as he took in the game. He retains a base in Warwickshire. He guided Birmingham to promotion from the Championship in 2008.

After failing to win any of Wolves' last nine matches, Solbakken is under pressure.
