Queens Park Rangers are poised to appoint former Tottenham and Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood as their new manager, according to the Evening Standard.

The Championship outfit, who currently sit 17th in the league table following Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest, are expected to confirm the 47-year-old as their new manager by the end of Tuesday.

Sherwood is set to replace Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink at Loftus Road, after the club sacked the former Leeds United, Chelsea and Middlesbrough striker last week.

It is understood that QPR’s Director of Football, Les Ferdinand, has been in talks with ex-Spurs boss Sherwood over the vacant managerial position.

But this isn’t the first time Sherwood, who is a former England international during his playing days, has been approached to become manager at Loftus Road.

Rangers approached him to step in after Harry Redknapp left back in 2015, but a deal never materialised, before opting for Aston Villa instead.
