Wolfsburg are set to move for FC Twente coach Steve McClaren.

The Daily Mail says West Ham co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold installed McClaren as their first choice after deciding to replace Gianfranco Zola, and Sporting Lisbon have also been on his trail.

But he looks bound for Germany after a strong signal from Wolfsburg that he is on the verge of accepting their managerial offer.

"We will be making an announcement in the next week and it could be that the identity of our new coach will come as a surprise to a lot of people," said Wolfsburg general manager Dieter Hoeness.
