Steve Cooper has agreed to become the new Nottingham Forest manager.

A deal for the 41-year-old to take over at the City Ground has been finalised and an announcement is expected later on Tuesday.

Forest agreed compensation with his former club Swansea late last week because Cooper was still technically contracted to the Welsh club.

He left the Liberty Stadium as head coach in July after leading them to the Championship play-offs.

Cooper, who guided England to the U17 World Cup in 2017, was immediately identified as the preferred candidate following the sacking of Chris Hughton.

After Hughton departed, a managerless Forest claimed their first league win of the season with a 2-0 victory at Huddersfield.

It was also the first time they have scored more than one goal in a league game since April.
