Andy Hughes is firmly in the frame to become first-team coach of Huddersfield Town.
Sources suggest the 38-year-old, currently working at Crystal Palace, is the favourite to replace Mike Marsh.
Ex-Leeds United favourite Hughes is a Mancunian who has also coached at Bolton Wanderers and Rotherham United.
A midfielder or full-back, he began his playing career at Oldham Athletic.
He then had spells at Notts County, Reading, Norwich City, Leeds, Scunthorpe, Charlton Athletic and Bolton.
He was a promotion winner with Notts (League II) and Leeds, Reading and Charlton (League I).
Palace complete their Premier League programme at Southampton on Sunday.
Then they meet Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley the following Saturday.
Marsh arrived at Town alongside Wagner and his right-hand man Christophe Buehler in November.
The club were keen to bring in an English coach in to help Wagner and Buehler make the transition from German football.
Town finished 19th in the Championship, with Wagner winning 10 of his 30 league games at the helm.
The squad will return for pre-season training on Friday, June 24.
