Chelsea are set to offer recently sacked manager Leonid Slutsky, a route back into professional football, with the Russian set for talks with close friend Roman Abramovich in the coming weeks.

Saturday's draw at Sheffield Wednesday left the Tigers, relegated from the Premier League last season, 20th in the table, three points above the bottom three.

He has left the club along with the Tigers' head of club strategy Oleg Yarovinsky. Unfortunately results have not improved as both parties would have hoped and therefore it was agreed for the relationship to come to an end.

Slutsky is said to have spent time around Chelsea prior to taking the Hull City job in the summer and he watched several matches at first team, under-23 and under-18 levels.

"I am very proud to have been through this experience, it was challenging but a very exciting time for me".

Hull now sit 20th in the Championship table, and are without a win in five games, recently drawing 2-2 with Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

The former Russian coach was appointed as successor to Marco Silva in June 2017.

Regardless, Slutsky is said to have a role at the club open by his longtime friend and Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

Hull City have reportedly moved closer to appointing Nigel Adkins as the club's new manager.
