Whelan is close to concluding interviews and could even announce the new manager on Friday.

"I still have two more lads to see but I expect to announce something tomorrow," Whelan told BBC Sport.

"I've seen some great lads, top managers and it could be we have to speak to one or two of them again, but I'd say it's likely we will make an announcement tomorrow."
