Mansfield Town are set to appoint Swindon Town boss David Flitcroft as their new manager, Sky sources understand.
Sky Sports News understands the 44-year-old has agreed to take over at Field Mill, after Steve Evans resigned on Tuesday before being appointed at Peterborough United.
Mansfield have confirmed they have appointed a new manager, who will be unveiled at a news conference at the club’s stadium on Thursday.
A club statement read: “Mansfield Town chairman John Radford and chief executive Carolyn Radford have acted swiftly and diligently in their search for a new manager.
“The club are pleased to announce that a new manager will be unveiled at a news conference at One Call Stadium at 10.45am tomorrow.”
Flitcroft joined Swindon last summer after spending three years as manager of Bury and a ten-month spell in charge of Barnsley.
Mansfield are fifth in League Two, just three points above Swindon in seventh.
