Taking charge on a full-time basis during the summer, Ince has overseen an unlikely rise into the top six- winning six of their opening 10 matches.

Former Reading manager Veljko Paunovic is another name rumoured to be on the Welsh outfits list, along with assistant coach Mark Hudson, Luton Town boss Nathan Jones and former captain Sol Bamba.
