Under Wilder, Sheffield United placed ninth in the Premier League during the 2019–20 campaign.
Paul Heckingbottom was fired by Sheffield United, becoming the first Premier League manager to do so this year.
Scott Parker of Bournemouth, Thomas Tuchel of Chelsea, Bruno Lage of Wolves, Steven Gerrard of Aston Villa, and Ralph Hasenhuttl of Southampton had all lost their positions prior to December of the previous season.
Heckingbottom’s two-year term as coach was ended by the club due to behavior following Saturday’s 5-0 loss to Burnley.
Chris Wilder, the former manager of Sheffield United, is emerging as a strong contender to replace Heckingbottom and go back to Bramall Lane.
United, who are presently bottom of the league after losing 11 of their previous 14 games, is set to talk with the 46-year-old this morning.
The group, who placed second in the Championship the year before, has come under fire for offloading key players Sander Berge and Iliman Ndiaye in the summer transfer window.
