Sheffield Wednesday's Danny Rohl starts a new job this summer - could it be good news for the Owls?

Danny Rohl will be an ITV pundit at this summer's European Championship, in another sign of the Sheffield Wednesday manager's growing reputation.

Rohl held initial talks with chairman Dejphon Chansiri about his future at the end of an outstanding first season in management led the Owls to Championship safety. The Thai businessman will attempt to persuade the 35-year-old that his future lies at Hillsborough, and perhaps to sign a new contract.

Rohl made it clear in the latter stages of last season that he would drive a hard bargain, seeking assurances that he will get the support he feels he needs on and off the field to drive the club forward.

But he clearly has great affection for the club and its fanbase and the fact he has committed to working for television in his homeland might suggest he is not expecting to be starting a new job any time soon.

The tournament starts on June 14, when Germany host Scotland live on ITV, and runs until July 14.

Rohl was on Germany's coaching staff at the last World Cup, and has also coached Bayern Munich, RB Leipzig and Southampton. He took his first managerial post when he inherited a Wednesday team which had made a record-breakingly bad start to the season in October's international break.

He will join a punditry team featuring ITV regulars Roy Keane, Ian Wright, Karen Carney, and Eni Aluko.

Gary Neville will be part of the team, as he often is in major tournaments which are not covered by Sky Sports. Liverpool and Scotland legend Graeme Souness, Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglu, and former referee Christina Unkel complete the punditry panel.
