Nathan Jones is under consideration for the vacant manager's job at Championship club Millwall.
Jones, 50, has been out of work since he was sacked by Southampton after just three months and 14 matches in charge.
He had two impressive spells as Luton Town boss and managed Stoke City in between but had less than 12 months in that job before he was dismissed.
No decision has been made yet and there are other candidates but Jones is well thought of among Millwall's hierarchy.
The Lions have been without a manager since Gary Rowett left by mutual consent on 18 October.
They have collected two points from their past three Championship games since his departure and are now 18th in the table.
