BBC Radio Leeds reporter Paul Ogden had wrote on his Twitter account yesterday that the Huddersfield board had narrowed down the candidates down to just three with Powell being named as one of those choices.

The 44-year-old former England international has signed a rolling contract with the club.

Powell was a popular figure at The Valley as a player, where he had three separate spells, and his popularity grew as he guided Charlton to the League One title in 2012 with a record 101 points.

He then guided the Addicks to a top 10 finish in the Championship a year later despite having one of the smallest budgets in the division.

Powell left the club in March this year following a number of disagreement with the new owner Roland Duchatelet.

The 2012 LMA League One manager of the year boasts of a 41% win ratio.

Joining Powell, is former Town player Alex Dyer who will be Powell's assistant.
