Kenny Jackett: Former Wolves boss favourite to become new Portsmouth manager

Kenny Jackett has previously won promotion from League One as manager of Millwall and Wolves

Former Wolves and Millwall manager Kenny Jackett heads the shortlist to replace Paul Cook as Portsmouth manager, BBC Radio Solent understands.

Cook is set to be unveiled as Wigan’s new manager but the deal has hit a minor delay, believed to be at the Wigan end of negotiations.

Jackett, 55, quit as manager of Rotherham in November after just five games and 39 days in charge.

Cook and his assistant Leam Richardson are both set to move to the DW Stadium.

Former Wales international Jackett, whose managerial career also includes spells in charge of Watford and Swansea City, has two promotions from League One on his CV with Millwall in 2010 and Wolves in 2014.

Rotherham lost four out of the five games Jackett took charge of last season as they eventually finished bottom of the Championship.
