Nottingham Forest to name Steve Cooper as new manager

Nottingham Forest are preparing to name Steve Cooper as new manager.

Cooper, who was previously in charge of Swansea, is set to replace Chris Hughton, who was sacked by Forest last week, says the Daily Mail.

Alan Tate and Steve Rands will be part of his coaching staff at Forest. Tate was previously Cooper's assistant at Swansea and also coached at their academy. Rands is an analyst who was also at Swansea and has previously worked for Manchester City and Derby.

An announcement regarding Cooper's appointment is expected to be made later on Tuesday.

Cooper left Swansea by mutual consent in July but on Monday night Forest agreed compensation with the Welsh club as he was still technically contracted to them.

Forest are bottom of the Championship with just four points from seven games, although they did manage to get their first league victory of the season last weekend when they won 2-0 against Huddersfield Town.
