Watford are sacking manager Slaven Bilic just days after a 0-0 home draw with Preston North End.
The Hornets are known for sacking managers and it looks like they’re at it again.
The Telegraph’s Jason Burt reports that Watford have decided to sack Bilic – and his replacement may already be known.
TalkSPORT’s Alex Crook claims that Chris Wilder is emerging as a potential successor at Vicarage Road.
Bilic became Watford boss in September following the rather abrupt sacking of Rob Edwards, who only joined last summer.
The revolving door at Watford strikes again as Bilic is on his way after just 26 games in charge.

10 wins, seven draws and nine defeats in that time just hasn’t been enough for the Watford board and Bilic is paying the price.
Watford sit ninth in the Championship table, just four points outside the playoffs.
This means Bilic’s last game in charge was Saturday’s 0-0 draw with PNE.
North End turned in a strong display at Vicarage Road and, on another day, could have easily left with all three points.
Bilic focused on PNE’s ability to ‘waste time’ after the final whistle, before cursing his own side’s ability in the final third.
PNE were very happy to take a point back to Lancashire and help lift the clouds for boss Ryan Lowe.
It feels like we have seen a number of managers lose their jobs straight after failing to beat PNE over the years.
Bilic can now be added to that list and Watford will move on to their third manager of another rather chaotic season.
