McKenna is no longer in the running for the Chelsea job

Ipswich Town boss Kieran McKenna is no longer in contention to become Chelsea’s next manager.

The 38-year-old was on the early shortlist of candidates to replace Mauricio Pochettino after he left the club by mutual consent last week.

The leading remaining candidates are former Brighton manager Roberto de Zerbi, Leicester’s Enzo Maresca and Brentford’s Thomas Frank.

Former Manchester United assistant manager McKenna, who guided Ipswich to promotion from the Championship, is still being linked with a return to Old Trafford if the FA Cup winners sack Erik ten Hag, as well as managerless Brighton.

Ipswich want to keep hold of McKenna and are expected to offer him a new deal – although he is unlikely to renew his deal.

He is under contract with Ipswich until 2027 and each club will have to pay compensation of at least £4 million.

De Zerbi and Maresca are both interested in a move to Stamford Bridge, but less is known about the nature of talks with Frank, who has also been linked with United.

Chelsea hope to appoint a manager next week but will be subject to negotiations over a compensation fee for the new manager’s current club.
