Brendan Rodgers could make a speedy return to the Premier League - as new manager of Aston Villa.
The Northern Irishman was relieved of his duties as Liverpool manager last weekend after the 1-1 draw with local rivals Everton.
Rodgers spent three years in charge at Anfield and almost took the club to the league title in 2014, but could only finish in 6th place, 25 points behind champions Chelsea.
Tim Sherwood is under pressure at Villa Park after picking up just one win from his first eight games of the season, and according to the Sun, Villa's owners are eyeing up his replacement.
The paper reports that the Villa board are growing tired of Sherwood, whose only win came on the opening day of the season, and that Rodgers is an attractive option as a replacement.
That would be a surprise turnaround from last week, when it was reported that Rodgers would take a break from the game following his departure from Liverpool, who announced former Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp as his replacement on Thursday.
The German has already been spotted watching Liverpool's Under-18 side as he prepares to help the Reds bounce back from their own slow start.
Sherwood, who is close friends with Rodgers, was appointed as Villa boss in February and helped the club reach the FA Cup final, where Villa lost to Arsenal.
The Sun reports that the fact Aston Villa have started slowly despite splashing almost £50 million in the transfer window means that Sherwood hasn't got much longer left.
