Tim Sherwood back in the running for Ipswich Town job behind favourite Paul Hurst

It's now been a whopping 60 days since Ipswich Town opened up their search for a new manager.

Now, it's no secret that the Suffolk club want Paul Hurst as their new boss. The Shrewsbury Town gaffer has featured prominently in the Next Ipswich Town Manager Market ever since Mick McCarthy announced that he would be leaving back in late March.

Ipswich have since been linked with managers from all ends of the spectrum, while they've recently held talks with both Jack Ross and Frank Lampard.

However, Ross went on to switch St Mirren for Sunderland last Friday, while betting has been suspended on Lampard making his managerial bow with Derby County.

Odds-on favourite Hurst will today (Sunday) lock horns with Rotherham's Paul Warne in the League One play-off final, with the victor joining Ipswich in the Championship next season.

Regardless of whether Hurst is successful or not in his promotion pursuit, Ipswich are fully expected to make a formal approach for his services next week.

If Ipswich's pursuit of Hurst proves to be unsuccessful, the door will be flung wide open.

Scott Parker, Jaap Stam and Chris Coleman have all been linked with the post, but one name that has surprisingly sprung back into the frame is...Tim Sherwood.

Former Tottenham and Aston Villa boss Sherwood saw his odds shorten significantly in early May back when he reportedly held talks with Ipswich, however he then drifted out of contention.

Last week he was hovering out at 20/1 in the betting, only to come in at 12/1 a few days ago, while he can now be found at 9/4, making him the second favourite behind Hurst.

Here at The Sack Race we simply can't envision this one happening considering that Sherwood has not managed since October 2015, plus there’s the small matter that he spent three years playing for Ipswich's rivals Norwich City.
