David Moyes set to be new Manchester United manager
Everton boss David Moyes is set to be appointed as the new Manchester United manager, following Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement.
An announcement could be made on Thursday.
Ferguson, 71, revealed his decision to step down after nearly 27 years at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
Fellow Scot Moyes, 50, who has been in charge at Goodison Park since 2002, held talks with Toffees chairman Bill Kenwright on Wednesday evening.
Wigan's Roberto Martinez and Michael Laudrup of Swansea are thought to top Everton's list of potential replacements.
Moyes is expected to tell players and staff of his decision to join United at a training ground meeting on Thursday morning.
He could still lead Everton out at Goodison Park against West Ham on Sunday for what would be his final home game in charge.
