McLaren in frame for director

Last updated : 11 May 2008 By Jamie Furniss
The ex Middlesbrough man is said to be approached by McCabe in the next few days regarding the vacant position. Bryan Robson and Graham Taylor have already turned down the job in the past.

Graham Taylor declined the offer on Wednesday while Bryan Robson decided not to take up the position in February. John Barnwell is also said to be in-line to be the Sheffield United director of football.

The role is to make sure that the likes of Chengdu and Ferencvaros have similar training methods to us so that possible movement of players between the clubs is a quick and smooth transition.
