Chesterfield are searching for their fourth permanent manager in 18 months following Sunday’s departure of Danny Wilson.

Wilson was given the boot after Chesterfield’s 2-0 defeat at Bradford left the club League One relegation zone, bringing an end to his one-year tenure at the Proact Stadium.

According to The Star Chesterfield have received job applications from all over Europe, including Portugal and Denmark, although the club have remained shtum on the identity of these prospective bosses.

Bristol City’s assistant head coach, Dean Holden, has emerged as the early evens favourite (Bet Victor) in the Next Chesterfield Manager Market. The former Spireites defender (2009-2011) previously managed Oldham on an interim basis back in 2015, but has yet to venture back into the dugout in his own right.

Caretaker boss Ritchie Humphreys is one of the top names in the betting at 12/1, however the 39-year-old is reportedly not keen on taking charge of the club on a permanent basis. But, Humphreys will oversee the club’s EFL Trophy clash at Luton on Tuesday, with the Spireites priced at 16/5 (Bet365) to come away with the win.

Meanwhile, other names in contention to replace Wilson include Neil Redfearn, David Flitcroft, Justin Edinburgh, and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
