Neil Warnock is to be appointed Cardiff City’s new manager.
The 67-year-old has agreed to succeed Paul Trollope, who was sacked on Tuesday after less than five months in charge.
Warnock has managed a host of clubs in England, including Leeds United, Sheffield United and Crystal Palace, and has an impressive record of seven promotions in his career.
He most recently enjoyed a successful spell at Rotherham, leading the relegation-threatened Millers to Championship safety last season after being appointed on a short-term deal in February.
Warnock was offered a long-term contract by the club in the summer but turned it down in search of a new challenge.
Now he has been tempted to make his return to management with Cardiff.
He will take over a Bluebirds side sitting second from bottom in the Championship, with his first game set to be Friday night’s visit of Bristol City.
