FC Twente coach Steve McClaren is being linked with Notts County.

The Daily Mail says the widespread assumption is that a big-name manager will be recruited sooner rather than later by the ambitious new owners unless Ian McParland quickly establishes Notts County as favourites for promotion.

And the name of Notts County chief Sven Goran Eriksson's successor as England boss, Steve McClaren - currently working in Holland - is among those being whispered by some close to the club.
