Wolves would be interested in speaking to Sam Allardyce over their managerial vacancy but the former England boss is cool on the role.

The 62-year-old is not looking to return to management until the New Year after his shock exit from the English Football Association last month.

The English FA's internal investigation into Allardyce's alleged conduct is on-going but does not prevent him from working, should a job arise.

While Wolves would be keen on Allardyce, the club recognises it would be a long shot to tempt the former Sunderland and West Ham manager to Molineux.

Wolves are looking to replace Walter Zenga after sacking the former Italy international, who managed just 87 days in charge at Molineux, on Tuesday.

Nigel Pearson has been interviewed and Paul Lambert is among several contenders while Wolves have spoken to others in their search for a third manager since July.

Experience in the Sky Bet Championship is key in the hunt with Zenga having flopped after his surprise arrival.
