Owls set to appoint Irvine

Published Add your comment

Sheffield Wednesday are expected to appoint Alan Irvine as their new manager, Press Association Sport understands.

The Owls, currently second bottom in the Coca-Cola Championship after failing to win any of their last 11 league games, parted company with former boss Brian Laws by mutual consent in early December.

Former Everton midfielder Irvine, 51, was sacked suddenly from his post as Preston manager last week after just over two years in charge at Deepdale.
