David Weir is set to be named as the new Sheffield United boss this week after holding talks with the club's board at the weekend.
The former Rangers and Everton defender looks to be the top choice now for the Blades hierarchy who have discussed the post with the 43-year-old over the last couple of days.
Weir, who was believed to have been in the running for the Everton job this summer, looks to have beaten former Blades defender Robert Page to the position.
Ex-Notts County manager Keith Curle, another former Blade, was also understood to be on the managerial shortlist after Stuart McCall turned down the chance to move to Bramall Lane.
