Rumours linking former Newcastle United and England striker Alan Shearer with the manager's hotseat at Hillsborough have resurfaced today in the local press.
The England legend turned TV pundit was first linked with the manager role at Hillsborough when Geoff Sheard first appeared on the scene with a possible takeover of the club.
Since then, the links have cooled down, with Blackburn Rovers reportedly interested in taking their former star striker on as boss following Mark Hughes' departure to Manchester City, but now Sam Allardyce looks favourite for the position.
And it could well be that Shearer is looking to start off further down the football pecking order, with Sheard and his consortium apparantly targeting Shearer should their takeover at S6 come to fruition.
The links come fresh off a meeting Sheard held with Dave Allen yesterday about purchasing his share in the club, to which he said: 'We had a very good, informative meeting.'
The rumours add more uncertainty to the club, with season ticket sales not too cracking with early indications, and current boss Brian Laws still pondering whether he'll have fresh money to bring in new players over the summer, whether he'll be on another shoestring budget, or whether he'll be in a job at all come the start of August.
It may all be rumour and speculation, but at last there seems to be some, if little, movement and talk about a takeover of the Owls.
