Tim Sherwood a reported target for Ipswich Town

Tim Sherwood has not been seen in the managerial arena since October 2015.

However, if the latest dose of rumours are to be believed then the straight-talking 49-year-old could make his eagerly anticipated comeback with Ipswich Town.

The search for Mick McCarthy’s successor has so far seen Ipswich linked with a variety of managers, including Danny Cowley, Sol Campbell, Alan Pardew, George Burley, Shefki Kuqi, Chris Coleman and Scott Parker.

However, TWTD is now reporting that Sherwood is under consideration for the Championship vacancy.

Sherwood’s first job was at Tottenham in late 2013 through to the end of the season. He may have won 50% of his games in charge but was shown the door in the summer, with Mauricio Pochettino entering in the other direction.

The former Premier League winning captain (Blackburn) then cropped up at Aston Villa in early 2015, replacing the sacked Paul Lambert. He saved the club from relegation and led them to their first FA Cup Final in 15 years, but lost out 4-0 to Arsenal.

The gilet-swinging boss then lost the Villa job in October of the following season, and has not returned since, although he did have a controversial and unsuccessful stint at Swindon as their director of football.

However, Sherwood could now be set to make his eagerly anticipated return to management with The Tractor Boys.

There’s no doubt that the fiery former Norwich City player would bring buckets of passion, heart and intensity to the job, although it remains to be seen whether he has the tactical nous.

For those interested Sherwood can still be backed at 33/1 in the market...
