Alan Curbishley is being backed for the Aston Villa job.
Glyn Snodin was number two to Curbishley during his spell in charge at West Ham, and believes the 52-year-old would have a "massive interest" in taking charge at Villa where he enjoyed a spell as a player.
Snodin, who is currently number two with Northern Ireland and Leeds, told the Independent: "The Aston Villa job will be of massive interest to Alan Curbishley.
"He has been waiting for a top club and it is a top club, a big club.
"He's been there as a player and the experience he has got in the Premier League is massive.
"He gets his team organised and people say it's not exciting football but he gets teams like he did at Charlton and West Ham playing well and keeps them in the top 10 every year.
"What some of those clubs have done since then is unbelievable and maybe shows just how good a job he did do."
