Paul Cook has also been linked with a move to Sunderland having been sacked by Ipswich Town in December.
In his time as a manager, Cook helped lead Chesterfield to a League Two promotion in 2013/14 and the following year managed them to a sixth-placed finish in League One. Cook was also successful in his time as manager of Portsmouth having guided the Fratton Park club to the League Two title in 2016/17.
However, the club he most notably had success at is Wigan Athletic. In his time at the DW Stadium, he led the club back to the Championship in 2017/18 as well as managing a memorable FA Cup run in which they reached the quarter-finals after beating AFC Bournemouth, West Ham United and eventual Premier League champions Manchester City.
Cook left Wigan following their relegation back to League One in 2019/20, having seen his team deducted points late on in the season that plunged the Latics into a relegation battle.
The most recent role that Cook had was in charge of Ipswich Town between March 2021 and December 2021, however, following a high turnover of players due to the Portman Road club showing a desire to earn promotion, as well as poor results on the pitch, Cook left the Tractor Boys having been sacked.
