Queens Park Rangers are set to announce former Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood as their new manager, reports the Evening Standard.
After former boss Jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink was sacked on Saturday evening, after the R’s 1-1 draw with struggling Nottingham Forest, Tim Sherwood is poised to replace him at Loftus Road.
Reports last week suggested that Sherwood was already close to becoming the manager of QPR despite Hasselbaink still being manager, but with Hasselbaink now gone, the deal is nearly done.
The Evening Standard also understands that former R’s boss Chris Ramsey is going to work closely with Sherwood with the club reportedly upgrading him from his role in charge of the youth team to become Sherwood’s assistant.
Sherwood was a success at White Hart Lane with Spurs but that was followed by a disastrous spell at Aston Villa last season.
The 47-year-old has never managed in the Championship but his experience of working at the top level may come to good use.
QPR fans will hope he can replicate his successes at Spurs instead of his torrid time at Villa.
