Former Huddersfield Town boss Lee Clark is set to become the new manager of Scottish Premiership strugglers Kilmarnock.
The 43-year-old has been out of the game since resigning his post at Blackpool in May.
Clark watched Town’s last home game, the 3-2 defeat by Cardiff City on January 30.
Gary Locke resigned as manager of second-bottom Killie last month.
Their next match is at Motherwell on Saturday, then they host Rangers in a Scottish Cup fifth-round replay.
Former Wigan Athletic, Rangers and Scotland player Lee McCulloch was in charge of the Ayrshire men for Saturday’s draw with the Ibrox side.
But despite impressing on his managerial debut, he won’t be the club’s boss on a permanent basis.
Former England Under 21 midfielder Clark played for Newcastle, Sunderland and Fulham during his playing career.
He had a spell coaching at Norwich City before moving into management with Town in December 2008.
Clark was sacked in February 2012 after a Football League record 43-game unbeaten run over two seasons.
He has been less successful since, with a 28% win record at Birmingham City, and just three wins in 33 games when in charge of Blackpool.
