Ex-Leeds boss Reid in line for Thailand post

"We are negotiating the details with Peter Reid of England and German Holger Osieck," Worawi told the Bangkok Post. "A deal will be finalised in a few weeks and I will formally announce who will be the new national coach."

Reid, who led Sunderland to promotion twice during a seven-year spell with the Black Cats, has not held a manager's position since leaving Coventry in January 2005.

Osieck was Franz Beckenbauer's assistant during Germany's World Cup-winning campaign in 1990 and led unfancied Canada to victory in the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 2000.
