Hull City have agreed a deal to make Marco Silva their new head coach, according to Sky Sports. An announcement is expected later today.
Silva will replace Mike Phelan, who was sacked on Tuesday after less than three months in charge.
The Portuguese coach held talks with the Tigers on Wednesday about becoming their third manager since they won promotion to the Premier League in May.
Silva, 39, has been out of work since the summer, when he quit Greek club Olympiakos for personal reasons after leading the club to a record 43rd domestic title in his sole season in charge.
The club confirmed on Wednesday that Phelan’s coaches Neil McDonald, Bobby Mimms and Stan Ternent have all left.
Marco Silva was born in Lisbon and played for youth teams in the city and just outside in Almada, just over seven miles away.
The former right-back began managing in 2011 and has been a free agent since the summer.
He has drawn comparisons to Jose Mourinho for achieving such success at a young age.
