Nottingham Forest have sacked manager Steve Cooper and are holding talks with former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo to replace him at the City Ground.
The BBC reports that after losing five of their past six games, Forest have decided to act and told Cooper of the decision on Tuesday.
Nuno, 49, was sacked by Saudi Pro-League club Al-Ittihad in November.
Former Eintracht Frankfurt boss Oliver Glasner has also been mentioned as a potential replacement, but it seems Nuno is now in pole position.
Forest, 17th in the top flight, have won once in 13 Premier League games and taken eight points in that time.
They have also picked up just one point from their past six matches and are five points ahead of third-bottom Luton, who have a match in hand.
