Paolo Di Canio Will Spurn Wednesday's Advances

Gary Megson has been sacked by Sheffield Wednesday, right away Paolo Di Canio is the favourite to succeed Megson.

It is expected that any such approach from Wednesday would be rejected right out of hand.

Paolo Di Canio has stated a number of times he wants to stay at Swindon Town for many years and the club are set to meet with his representatives to iron out a new extended contract.

It is thought Di Canio himself would reject any approach as he has a plan in place and wants to see it through at Swindon Town.

Paolo's team are currently top of League Two by 4 points and are in the final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

Dave Jones and Lee Clark are two managers already linked to the vacancy.

PDC will not leave, he knows that by starting in league 2 and progressing to the Championship in successive seasons he will put himself right up there with A) the fans, and B) prospective premiership clubs in 3 or 4 years time.

maybe he's using town as a makeweight until west ham sack big sam so he can takeover there?

You get the impression that he has genuine loyalty to this job, but also in sticking with one club for an extended period might actually add some credibility to his reputation. As great a job as he is doing at Swindon, he retains the mad as a hatter reputation and I'm sure that many perspective chairmen will still fear his mentality will be a problem or them. In sticking with one club he at least gives an impression of stability and ability to work with a board and players
