Nottingham Forest are set to appoint club legend Martin O'Neill as manager to succeed Aitor Karanka, reports BBC Radio Nottingham.

The 66-year-old, who played 371 games and won a European Cup among his honours at Forest, ended his spell as Republic of Ireland boss last November.

He returns to a Forest side who are ninth in the Championship, four points outside the play-off places.

O'Neill becomes Forest's 11th manager since June 2011.
