Former Carlisle United boss John Sheridan is on the move again - after just seven games in charge of his latest club.

Sheridan, who quit the Cumbrians after half a season in 2018/19, is reportedly set to leave Irish outfit Waterford to take charge at League One crisis club Wigan.

Reports in Ireland say Sheridan, 55, is expected to leave Waterford after tomorrow's League of Ireland game against Bohemians.

He is set to be in the dugout when Wigan start their League One season against Ipswich on Sunday.

It comes with Wigan having been relegated to the third tier after a 12-point deduction, with their long-term future still in the balance.

The Latics, whose boss Paul Cook resigned six weeks ago, are still seeking a buyer to take them out of administration.

Sheridan had only been appointed at Waterford in July and has them sitting fifth in the League of Ireland Premier Division.

One of his games in charge led to a touchline row with then Dundalk boss Vinny Perth, who accused Sheridan of branding the Irish league as a "pub league" and a "shambles".

Sheridan denied the claims and said he did not "disrespect the league".

His time at Brunton Park saw the former Republic of Ireland international lead Carlisle into automatic promotion contention before he quit midway through the season for National League side Chesterfield, where he was in charge for a year before being sacked.

His tenure also saw some touchline spats with certain Blues players.
