Former Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is in line to take the CSKA Sofia manager's job.
Pardew has been working as the Bulgarian club's technical director since leaving his managerial position at Dutch club ADO Den Haag.
But Sky Sports says Pardew took training on Thursday ahead of Sunday's Eternal derby against Levski Sofia.
The 60-year-old, who managed at seven English clubs, will run the team on a "short-term basis."
Pardew's stint in charge of CSKA could even stretch until the end of the season after manager Stoycho Mladenov departed.
