Middlesbrough boss Wilder favoured by incoming Bournemouth owners

Middlesbrough boss Chris Wilder is emerging as a favourite for the vacant manager's job at Bournemouth.

The Daily Mail says Wilder is high on the list of those being considered by the prospective new owners, headed by NHL franchise supremo Bill Foley.

The £150million buyout could be completed by the end of next month.

The Cherries are managerless after Scott Parker was sacked just four games into the Premier League season and Gary O'Neil is expected to remain in interim charge for the time being.

However, former Sheffield United boss Wilder - who took the Blades from League One to ninth in the Premier League - is thought to be admired by the Americans.

The 55-year-old was appointed by Boro last November but his side are currently third from bottom in the Championship.
