Steve McClaren is set to make a return to English football

Steve McClaren is poised to make a return to English football.

Having taken up a role as a coaching consultant with Maccabi Tel Aviv in Israel (yeah, we didn't know either), it's now being reported that he's quit this job to "pursue other options".

"It's with much regret I have to return to England and leave my role at Maccabi Tel Aviv," McClaren explained.

What exactly those "other options" are remains unclear at this stage, although plenty of people seem to have worked out where the former England boss might be about to pop up.

Following the Christmas Eve departure of Carlos Carvalhal, some are tipping McClaren to take charge at Sheffield Wednesday.

Wednesday are currently 14th in the Championship, despite reaching the playoffs at the end of last season. Judging by the reaction on Twitter, the news that McClaren could be their next manager hasn't gone down well with many of the club's supporters.

McClaren's last managerial job in England was with Derby County last season - his second spell as boss at Pride Park.

News of his return to England comes within hours of the confirmation that Carvalhal has become the new manager of Swansea City, who are currently bottom of the Premier League.
