Royals Target Set To Take Wycombe Role

Tony Adams, who failed in his application to become the new Reading manager just weeks ago, is set to take control at Second Division Wycombe.

The former England captain is widely believed to be on the verge of penning a deal with the Buckinghamshire side. The Chairboys have announced that they will formally unveil their new man in an 11am press conference at the Causeway Stadium, tomorrow.

Adams, if appointed, will replace former Reading assistant manager John Gorman who has been taking temporary charge of the Chairboys following the dismissal of another ex-Reading man, Lawrie Sanchez.

Over the past few years, Adams has been completing his coaching badges in a bid to land himself his first job as a manager.

Whilst he was interviewed for the Reading job, he failed to land the post but it now appears that he could be set for his first job as, according to his agent, he has had favourable reports about the Division Two side.

"Tony has been impressed by the people at Wycombe and had a chat with Martin O'Neill, who was very encouraging about the club," explained Steve Kutner, speaking to the Daily Mail.

"We have been approached by a few clubs who have been interested in making Tony manager. But the decision on where he starts his coaching career is one he is taking very seriously."

Whoever takes charge of Wycombe has an arduous task on their hands. With seventeen games played the Chairboys sit bottom of the Second Division with just eleven points to their name, five points adrift of safety.
