Neil Warnock is set to quit as Huddersfield manager, talkSPORT understands.
The 74-year-old’s relationship with the Terriers hierarchy is at breaking point – despite Saturday’s 2-0 win over Rotherham.

And it is likely that the visit of Stoke on Wednesday will be his last game in charge.
It appears a mysterious foreign boss has already been identified with a view to Warnock’s departure.
The former Sheffield United manager was appointed at the John Smith Stadium in February, with the club sitting 23rd in the Championship table.
He defied the odds by keeping the Yorkshire side in second place in English football, with Huddersfield finishing in 18th place.
Warnock then signed a one-year contract to keep him at the club until the end of the 2023/24 season.
But he looks set to bow out, with Huddersfield currently 16th after six matches.
The former QPR boss spoke to the media during his post-match press conference, where he insisted he would detail his future on Monday.
He said: “I am very proud of what we have achieved here. We have a press conference Monday at 1 p.m.

“They (social media) said it was my last match, so that’s not true, right?
“I’ve enjoyed every minute here and I’m not ready to talk about it tonight.”
Commenting on the visit to Stoke, he said: “Of course I will (I’ll be here for Wednesday’s game).
“I want to win, I want to beat Stoke. I just enjoy my football, the crowd and the atmosphere, and when I see the guys put in a performance like that.
