SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY will turn to Aitor Karanka to save their season if Carlos Carvalhal fails to get the Owls moving.

Karanka, 44, is available after leaving Middlesbrough in March and backing away from the Birmingham vacancy.

The Spaniard took Boro to the top flight and that is Wednesday’s dream.

His tough style of management appeals to the Wednesday owners and their advisers.

Carvalhal is fighting to keep his job after failing to go up twice and starting this campaign poorly.

The local derby defeat and a follow-up setback at Birmingham has him put under fire.

Karanka’s availability simply adds to the pressure.

The highly-rated coach is choosy about his next move but could be interested in Wednesday, who host high-flying Leeds United on Sunday.

Meanwhile, John Sheridan could make a quick return to management at Port Vale after his Oldham departure last week.

Sheridan is in the frame for the post with the League Two strugglers, who are looking for an experienced figure after sacking Michael Brown two weeks ago.

Brian Horton and Graham Westley have also been linked with the Vale post but Sheridan is emerging as a late runner.
