Steve Bruce remains a major contender to become the next Wolves manager even though other candidates will be interviewed during the next 48 hours, Press Association Sport understands.

The midlands club are continuing their search for Mick McCarthy's successor after having to write off hopes of securing either Alan Curbishley or Brian McDermott in the role.

Former Charlton and West Ham boss Curbishley knocked back Wolves' approach for a second time while McDermott has signed a new three-and-a-half-year contract with Reading.
