Former Owl set for Blades hot seat?

Former Owl set for Blades hot seat?

Former Wednesday player and manager Danny Wilson is set to be named as the new manager of Sheffield United this lunchtime, according to reports.

Wilson resigned as manager of Swindon Town, who were eventually relegated from npower League One this season, in March but is understood to have beat off competition from former Barnsley boss Mark Robins and Rochdale manager Keith Hill for the vacant Blades post.

The announcement, which is due at midday today, is set to cause a major stir amongst football fans in the Steel City.

Wilson was highly thought of amongst Wednesdayites following a playing spell with the Owls between 1990-93 and also returned as manager of the club in the Premier League between 1998-2000.

His appointment in the red and white side of the city is likely to cause protests amongst United fans ahead of the start of the new season.

Wilson will be charged with the job of getting the Blades back to the npower Championship at the first attempt following relegation last term, replacing Micky Adams in the manager's hot seat.

The announcement of the Blades' new manager is due at midday today.
