Carrick is reportedly in no rush to bring in any more backroom staff members. According to a report by the Northern Echo, Rene Meulensteen and current Leicester City coach Adam Sadler have been considered.

Meulensteen, 58, has also worked at Fulham, Maccabi Tel Aviv, Kerala Blasters and with the Australia national team over recent times. He most notably was Sir Alex Ferguson’s number two at Old Trafford alongside Mike Phelan for a number of years.

Football League World claim Middlesbrough want Shrewsbury Town midfielder Tom Bayliss. Blackburn Rovers, Blackpool and Reading have also been credited with an interest in the ex-Preston North End and Wigan Athletic man.

Josh Coburn is catching the eye out on loan at Bristol Rovers. He scored for Joey Barton’s side last night in their 1-1 draw away at Sheffield Wednesday. The young striker linked up with the Gas on loan over the summer and has scored three goals in seven games since then.
