Bielsa is a surprise contender to succeed Monk, who was sacked last week after a run of one win in 11 games, and is now set to hold talks with Jenkins in his native Argentina.

The 60-year-old has been out of work since quitting as Marseille coach just one match into the new season, following a 1-0 home defeat to Caen, and his dramatic resignation fitted in with his  nickname of 'El Loco'.
