Now, in the wake of the news attention has turned to who will replace Monk with a number of names in the frame to be the new man in the hot seat at Hillsborough. Here is the latest on what we know as Dejphon Chansiri searches for his next manager. A surprise name in the frame All the talk in the immediate aftermath of Monk's departure was centred around Paul Cook. The former Wigan Athletic boss was immediately installed as the favourite, only to be replaced Tuesday morning by Tony Pulis.
The ex-Middlesbrough, West Brom and Stoke City manager may know the Championship well but it's not a move that would excite many supporters. But, how about a deal to bring Philip Neville into the club? Sky Sports are reporting Neville is on the shortlist of candidates to take over at Wednesday. England women's manager Neville is under contract at the FA until next summer, but is known to be looking at a move into club management. It's our understanding Chansiri, who is not currently in the UK, has drawn up a shortlist of potential replacements for Monk, so is Neville among them and would he be a good choice?

Pulis approached The one contender that appears to be further down the track at this early stage than anyone else is Tony Pulis. The Owls have their shortlist, but it is understood an approach has already been made to Pulis to hold talks regarding the position. News of that approach has seen Pulis rocket to the top of the betting, but it is worth stressing at this stage an approach is only a first step, with at least two other candidates also set to hold talks. Anyone ruled out? Actually yes. He may not have even been in the conversation but it seems former Everton and Hull City boss Marco Silva is not interested in the job. According to the BBC's Simon Stone, Silva is "not interested" in moving to the second tier. While he's not officially been ruled out, it's thought former Owls player Nigel Pearson would not be interested in taking over.

Along with Neil Thompson, who was bumped up from the under-23s, they formed a new-look coaching set-up under Monk. Now, after last night's developments, Thompson remains at the club as does Tony Strudwick who is head of Sport Science and Medicine and was brought in by Steve Bruce. Long-serving duo Lee Bullen and Nicky Weaver, who both played for Wednesday before moving into coaching, remain too. The pair were demoted down to the under-23s upon the arrival of Beattie, Flahavan and Hughes. As for Weaver, he spent two years working with the first-team as goalkeeping coach after replacing Andy Rhodes. The pair are expected to oversee the under-23s game against Bristol City which takes place on Wednesday afternoon.
