Hans Backe has reportedly told journalists in Sweden he will hold talks with League Two outfit Notts County over the vacant managerial post. The Swede was most recently employed as a coach under Magpies director of football Sven-Goran Eriksson with Mexico and Manchester City.

Despite his low profile over here, the 57 year old has won four Danish league titles with FC Copenhagen and Aalborg BK while he has also managed Panathinaikos in Greece.
