Peterborough United are expected to appoint former Stevenage manager Graham Westley as the club’s new manager within the next few days, according to the Peterborough Telegraph.
The 47-year-old enjoyed three separate spells at Broadhall Way, his most recent spell ended in the summer after he failed to guide them back into Sky Bet League One at the first time of asking, losing in the Play-off semi-final to eventual winners Southend United.
Posh sacked manager Dave Robertson earlier in the month after a poor start to the season, in which they won just one of their opening six games.
A number of managers have been linked with the Posh post, including Rotherham United manager Steve Evans and Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler, but chairman Darragh MacAnthony revealed that he had a four man shortlist for the role, which Westley evidently tops.
Westley has been in attendance for the last three Peterborough games and will have been impressed after recent performances under caretaker manager Grant McCann, as the Posh have picked up four points from two games – the most recent of which a 1-1 draw with Walsall yesterday.
Former Northern Ireland international McCann is expected to stay with the club in some capacity as he is highly rated by the chairman.
