Is Jason Tindall among candidates for Sheffield United job as shortlist is reportedly finalised?

Jason Tindall is among the candidates set to be on Sheffield United’s final shortlist.

The Sheffield Star reports the club are putting the finishing touches to the list of names being considered to become their next manager.

Slavisa Jokanovic remains a likely choice as his time at Qatari side Al-Gharafa looks to be coming to end next month.

Jokanovic has previously been promoted from the Championship with Fulham and Watford. The Blades board also like his willingness to develop young players and the Serb is interested in the role.

Jokanovic’s former assistant at Craven Cottage and Vicarage Road – Javier Pereira – is another. Pereira is currently in charge at Henan Songshan Longmen in the Chinese Super League.

United owner, Prince Abdullah, is open to appointing a boss from overseas. However, the Blades have also received several applications from people working in England.

Among those, it seems, is Tindall.

Tindall is currently working at Bramall Lane, assisting caretaker Paul Heckingbottom after the exit of Chris Wilder.

Heckingbottom has already made it clear he does not want the job permanently. He’s likely to return to leading the Under-23s when his interim spell finishes at the end of this season.

Yet Tindall is interested in the role and is being considered a “possible option”.

The 43-year-old was most recently in charge at Bournemouth, but was sacked six months into this campaign.

Prior to that, Tindall worked as assistant to Eddie Howe as the Cherries rose from League Two to the Premier League.

But with his little experience as number one coming to an early end, his appointment as Wilder’s successor would likely be underwhelming among the fans.

Jokanovic is thought of as a much more popular choice.
