Currently in the League One relegation zone after picking up just four points from their first seven games, Oldham Athletic appear to be looking for a change.

Managed by John Sheridan, who admitted seeing ‘improvements’ from his side in the 2-2 draw against Fleetwood Town, the Latics are, according to Le10 Sport in France, currently in talks with a new manager about replacing the former Notts County boss.

The man they are said to be negotiating for is Pablo Correa, sacked around two weeks ago from Ligue 2 side AS Nancy in France after four years in charge.

The French website claim Oldham Athletic are ‘very interested’ in bringing the ex-Uruguayan striker to turn things around at Boundary Park, with a suggestion things are going in the right direction for an appointment to be announced in the near future.

Managing Nancy between 2002-2011 and then 2013-2017, Pablo Correa helped Nancy go from Ligue 2 to spending six years in France’s top flight from 2005-2011, finishing 4th during the 2007-08 season.

Rehired after their relegation to Ligue 2 in 2012-13, Correa then helped Nancy back to Ligue 1 for the 2016-17, but failed to keep them up as they finished 19th.

If given time, he could be the right man to help Oldham Athletic break back into League One’s top ten, something they haven’t managed since 2008-09.
