John Sheridan has told Wigan Athletic he intends to become the new manager of Swindon Town.

The 56-year old took charge of Wigan against Tranmere Rovers in the Papa John’s Trophy last night but his month to month contract ends this week and Wigan remain in administration.

Swindon have approached Sheridan after Richie Wellens left for Salford City last week.

Swindon, who won the League Two title last season, are currently sitting one place of the relegation zone after winning just three of the nine games so far this season.   

Sheridan’s departure from Wigan could be detrimental to the club – who have been in administration since 1 July.

However, the administrators remain hopeful after detailing the extent of their situation.

‘We have not as yet had a final decision from the EFL regarding the transfer of the Football Share,’ said the administrators.

‘Both the bidders and ourselves, together with our legal team, have had regular and ongoing discussions with the EFL regarding their requirements.

‘The exclusivity agreement with the bidders, which runs out on 11 November, has been extended for a further period to try and ensure that we reach a satisfactory conclusion. At this stage, we cannot say when that will be, as matters rest with the EFL.

‘Whilst we fully understand the fans’ frustration and the effect generally on the club, we must adhere to the procedures set down if we are to be successful.’
