Billy Davies is set to return to Nottingham Forest in the coming days.
The Daily Mail says Davies is set to return to Nottingham Forest as manager for a second spell as the clubâ€™s Kuwaiti owners offered an olive branch to their supporters.
The Scot, who has been out-of-work since leaving the City Ground in June 2011, will be a popular choice among fans as the Al-Hasawi family look to appoint their third boss since taking over last summer.
Davies had been interviewed for the vacant position at Blackpool but told Seasidersâ€™ chairman Karl Oyston that he wanted to pursue another opportunity.
Forest owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi was whittling down a shortlist from his base in London yesterday and Davies is expected to be announced as Alex McLeishâ€™s successor within the next 24 hours.
