Former Norwich City boss Alex Neil is the latest name to have been linked with the managerial vacancy at Ipswich Town.

According to the Daily Record in Scotland, Hibernian are eager to appoint the 40-year-old following their recent decision to part company with Jack Ross.

However, the report claims that Neil is set to turn down the role in his homeland because he is keen to continue his managerial career south of the border, having been out of work since being sacked by Championship outfit Preston North End in March.

It is claimed that Neil is among the names on Ipswich's shortlist to potentially replace the departed Paul Cook – and that he would be keen to discuss the job with the powers that be.

Neil was in charge of Norwich when they defeated the Tractor Boys in the Championship play-off semi-finals in 2014/15, and subsequently he guided the Canaries to the Premier League.

Meanwhile, the East Anglian Daily Times has reported that former Millwall and Cardiff City chief Neil Harris is also keen on filling the Portman Road hotseat.

The publication adds that Harris was also interested in the job prior to Cook's appointment earlier this year.
