Nottingham Forest are confident of appointing Gus Poyet as their new manager, sources have told TEAMtalk.com.
Forest are on the look-out for a new manager following the departure of Dougie Freedman last month and Poyet is understood to be top of their wanted list.
Paul Williams has been in caretaker charge since Freedman’s exit, but the club are keen to bring in a big name this summer to try and transform the club’s fortunes
Former Brighton and Sunderland boss Poyet left Greek side AEK Athens last week after originally signing a deal until the summer after joining them in October.
Poyet, who guided AEK Athens to second place in the table with 18 wins from his 28 games in charge, announced he would no extend his deal at the end of the season and that prompted AEK owner Dimitris Melissanidis to brand Poyet “immoral” and relieve him of his duties.
Ex-Tottenham and Chelsea midfielder Poyet has also been linked with moves to Aston Villa and Ipswich, but Nottingham Forest are determined to lure the Uruguayan to the City Ground.
