Huddersfield Town have been linked with Paolo di Canio.

The Sunday Mirror says Di Canio has emerged as a surprise contender for the vacant manager's position at Huddersfield Town.

The Terriers, who dismissed Simon Grayson 10 days ago, have shortlisted the Italian manager as their second choice if they fail to entice deposed Southampton boss Nigel Adkins to West Yorkshire.

Huddersfield are keeping an eye on the Di Canio situation, after the 44-year-old former Sheffield Wednesday and West Ham United striker reportedly had a bust-up with Swindon's new owners.
