England Under-20 head coach Joe Edwards has emerged as a shock candidate for the vacant Millwall manager's job.
The Championship side are advancing with their recruitment of a new head coach following the departure of Gary Rowett last month.
Former Southampton and Luton boss Nathan Jones is emerging as a leading contender for the position at The Den as the experienced coach seeks a return to management following his sacking at St Mary's earlier this year.
Edwards, however, is understood to be among the names Millwall are keen to speak to as they decide on their next permanent head coach.
Edwards is currently manager of England's U20 team and has built an excellent reputation as one of the best young coaches in the country.

Eventually Edwards played a key role under Thomas Tuchel as Chelsea lifted the Champions League in 2021.
Edwards reunited with Lampard at Everton in 2021 before following the ex-England international back to Stamford Bridge earlier this year for an interim spell following the sacking of Graham Potter.
Jones' vast experience of Championship football could give the 50-year-old the edge in the race to land the Millwall job, while Kevin Muscat - who went close to landing the Rangers job - is also a contender.
John Eustace is admired by Millwall, but he is a leading contender for the Bristol City vacancy.
But Edwards is a coach that features highly on the south London club's possible list of contenders to replace current interim boss Adam Barrett.
