Steve Cooper agrees to become manager of Nottingham Forest |  Football news


Steve Cooper has agreed to become the new manager of Nottingham Forest.

A deal for the 41-year-old to take over at City Ground has been finalized and an announcement is expected later on Tuesday.

Forest agreed to compensation with his former club Swansea late last week because Cooper was still technically under contract with the Welsh club.

He left Liberty Stadium as head coach in July after leading them to the Championship playoffs.

Cooper, who guided England to the U17 World Cup in 2017, was immediately identified as the preferred candidate after Chris Hughton was sacked.
