Paul Jewell is an early candidate for Steve Bruce's job at Birmingham City.

Bruce is set to move to Wigan Athletic in the coming days and The Sun says Jewell is a candidate for a move to St Andrews.

Jewell is being linked with a host of vacant posts, including jobs with Preston and the Republic of Ireland.

However, he is quite happy to bide his time, knowing he is in big demand at the moment.

And if the Birmingham job does become free, he could find himself top of their wanted list.
