Former England and Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes is in line to fill the vacant manager's job at League One club Oldham Athletic, having been interviewed by the club.

The club refused to comment on whether Scholes has been spoken to about the job, but BBC Sports reports talks have taken place between the club and Scholes who is a boyhood Oldham fan with no managerial experience in the EFL.

Oldham have been without a manager since John Sheridan left in September with the Latics bottom of League One.

They have won all three matches under interim boss Richie Wellens, including two in the league, and are now 19th in the table.

Wellens, who retired as a player last season, has stated that he would like to be given the job on a full-time basis after leading the club out of the relegation zone.

Former Netherlands international Clarence Seedorf had been linked with the job but is now out of the running.

The Latics are subject to potential investment and failed to pay their players and staff for the month of September - the third time the club have not paid wages since 2011.
