Former QPR manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is set to be named as the new manager of League One side Northampton Town, according to reports.
The Cobblers parted company with manager Justin Edinburgh after a disappointing start to the season, which included a 1-0 defeat to the Hoops in the Carabao Cup first round.
Hasselbaink and Shrewsbury Town boss Paul Hurst were thought to be the front-runners for the vacant role, with the former Chelsea and Middlesbrough striker in line to be offered the role.
The Dutchman, who guided Burton Albion to the League Two title in 2014/15, has been out of work since being sacked by QPR last November and he is understood to be keen to get back into management.
It's thought that Hasselbaink also beat former Charlton manager Chris Powell to the role.
