Paul Dickov: Thought to be on the radar of Millwall

The Lions are in the hunt for a new boss following the departure of long-serving Kenny Jackett earlier this week.

Sky Sports understands former Oldham manager Paul Dickov has emerged on the radar of the club, while former player Marc Bircham is odds-on favourite with Sky Bet to land the job.

But the club insist it has yet to make an approach to a candidate and will instead look to draw up a shortlist at some stage next week.

Chief executive Andy Ambler told the club's official website: "The process is ongoing.

"We're aware of widespread reports in the media but I'd like to clarify to supporters that we are yet to approach anybody about the position left after Kenny's resignation.

"Naturally, there will be speculation, and as a Board we've been enthused by the number and quality of applicants that have put their names forward so far.

"But that is only as far as it has got. It's still just a matter of days since the process began and the club will take all the time it needs to find the appropriate person to fill the vacancy."
