Everton U-23s manager David Unsworth is being linked with both the Barnsley and Bradford City jobs, according to the Yorkshire Post.

Unsworth, who took charge of Everton on an interim basis earlier this season, attracted interest from Oxford United, but the 44-year-old turned down the chance to manage the League One side.

Barnsley are on the hunt for a new manager after losing Paul Heckingbottom to local rivals Leeds United and Unsworth is thought to be one of several names under consideration for the position.

Paul Hurst, Neil Redfearn and Danny Cowley have also been linked with the position.

Bradford are also in the market for a manager after they sacked Stuart McCall, a decision that has surprised many.

Unsworth has expressed his desire to get back into the senior game after a mixed time in charge of Everton prior to Sam Allardyce’s appointment at Goodison Park.

The Everton U-23s boss has caught the eye at youth level as he guided his Toffees side to the Premier League 2 title last season.
