Jackett's five-and-a-half-year spell with the club came to an end on Tuesday when he stepped down from his position.

The bookmakers have Owen Coyle and Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe among the early favourites for the position, but Ambler revealed that the board have yet to identify their main target.

Ambler said: "We'll take our time. I know everyone will be clamouring for a list but there is no list at the moment. We're just sifting through applicants.

"The squad the new manager will inherit is a decent one and we know where we need to strengthen.

"Kenny Jackett left the club in a much better state than when he joined it. We need to make sure that five-and-a-half years of stability is built on.

"We are an ambitious club and we will take our time to get the appointment right."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
