Former Wigan boss Paul Jewell is set to be named as the new manager of Derby County, BBC Sport understands.
The Premier League's bottom club have called a 0930 GMT news conference at which Jewell's appointment looks certain to be confirmed.
MK Dons boss Paul Ince had also been linked with the Derby vacancy after Billy Davies left the club on Monday.
The Rams have collected just six points from their opening 14 matches to lie four points adrift of safety.
Jewell, 43, quit Wigan after securing their Premier League safety on the final day of last season.
I, for one am very happy about this appointment but what about other rams fans?
