Wolves could see their managerial search hampered as Wigan now enter the market for a new boss following Roberto Martinez's decision to leave the DW Stadium. Former Bolton and Burnley manager Owen Coyle is the leading frontrunner for the Wolves job and was the number one choice of over 7,000 Wanderers supporters in a recent local newspaper poll. However, the Scot has also now emerged as one of the bookies' favourites for the Wigan vacancy as they look to replace the outgoing Martinez, who is set for talks with Everton. Wolves could now see any attempts to lure Coyle scuppered by the potential draw of a Latics side competing in the Championship for an instant return to the top flight and operating on a larger budget. Molineux chiefs have remained tight-lipped regarding the identity of potential candidates throughout their search for a head coach to replace Dean Saunders, who was sacked over three weeks ago following relegation to League One. But head of football development and recruitment Kevin Thelwell has issued an update on their progress. "We have formally interviewed several candidates for the role, all of whom have been impressive and of a high quality. Interviewing is continuing," he told the club's official website. "While there is often a clamour to make a swift decision, we are taking full advantage of the less pressurised close-season to conduct a thorough and rigorous process to find the right person to help take the club forward." Other names in the frame for the Molineux post include Steve McClaren, Kenny Jackett and Steve Davis. The 20-year-old made just 11 appearances last term and manager Neal Ardley admitted he could not guarantee him more game time over the next campaign. "With the pressures of fighting relegation last season, I wasn't able to offer Huw many opportunities," Ardley told the Don's website. "At Huw's age and at this stage of his career, he needs to be playing first-team football. We can't guarantee him that next season and we know that there are clubs interested in him. "It therefore seemed best for all parties that he be free to decide where he wants to go to further his career. "I'd like to thank Huw for his contribution to the club and wish him well in his future career."
