Newcastle United chairman Freddy Shepherd will hand Glenn Roeder the Toon hotseat on a full-time basis on Monday, if you believe today's national newspapers.
The problem is Roeder's lack of FA badges, but the United chief will get around the fact that his current caretaker boss does not have a UEFA Pro License (needed to manage in the Premiership) by giving him a director of football title.
Roeder will be allowed to decide who he wants to assist him and could plump for reserve manager Tommy Craig, who stepped up his duties when Graeme Souness was axed in February.
Martin O'Neill has been the favourite for the Toon hotseat for months but Shepherd has had enough of the Irishman's stalling tactics. A bid of £8m over four years has been on the table for weeks, and Fred has had enough of his 'I'm not too sure attitude'.
Shepherd sees the job as one of the top positions in world football, and he is not prepared to be held over a barrel by a man who cannot make up his mind.
