Sean O'Driscoll: About to take the managerial reins at Nottingham Forest
Sky Sports understands that Sean O'Driscoll has accepted an offer to become the new manager at Nottingham Forest.
O'Driscoll was identified as a leading candidate for the role in the wake of Mick McCarthy's decision to rule himself out of the running.
He was believed to be the top choice of the Al-Hasawi family, who parted with Steve Cotterill's services shortly after completing a takeover at the City Ground.
O'Driscoll was interviewed for the post on Wednesday, before holding a second round of discussions on Thursday.
Forest have made no secret of their desire to make an appointment as soon as possible and have wasted no time in putting an offer on the table.
They have turned to a man who took in a spell with the Reds last season, with O'Driscoll having formed part of Cotterill's backroom team for the second half of the campaign.
He left to take the reins at Crawley Town in May, but would appear to be making his way back to Trentside.
