Yahoo announced it was to replace Jerry Yang in November, less than 18 months after giving him the top job.

Yang angered many Yahoo stakeholders after he rejected a Microsoft buyout offer in February. Yahoo's value has dropped more than $30bn since then.

Arun Sarin, who led Vodafone through a period of rapid changebefore stepping down earlier this year, is said to be considering the position, according to the Financial Times.

He is considered a strong contenderbecause of his decisive approach to cutting costs and expanding into emerging markets at Vodafone.

Prior to his five years at Vodafone, Sarin held various executive jobs at US-based technology companies.

Sarin has not yet commented on speculation about his plans to join Yahoo, but is said to be considering several other roles.
