Milan Mandaric has recommended to new owner Hafiz Mammadov to keep Stuart Gray as head coach at Hillsborough.
Mammadov is expected to get Football League approval for his £40m takeover of Wednesday in the near future and Mandaric, who is staying on as chairman, said: “I’m quite sure Stuart is staying and will be given a proper chance. That is my recommendation and Hafiz is a very sensible person. Stuart also deserves it.”
Mandaric has also hinted there could be additions to the management team but his recommendation to Mammadov should end speculation about Gray’s future and pave the way for him to move forward in the transfer market in the coming weeks.
One of those targets could be Newcastle’s Sammy Ameobi, with reports saying that Gray has made an enquiry for the 22-year-old striker.
