Harry Kewell has agreed to become the new manager of Oldham Athletic, according to reports.
The former Socceroo has been out of work since being sacked by Notts County in November 2018 but is expected to sign a one-year deal with an option for a second, report Sky Sports.
A formal announcement is expected to be made later on Saturday evening (AEST).
The Aussie had previously been linked with the job back in 2018, shortly after leaving Notts County, but was ultimately looked over for the role.

Kewell will be replacing former boss Dino Maamria who was sacked after 10 months in the role on Saturday morning (AEST).
The 49-year-old won just nine of his 32 games in charge as they finished 19th in a points-per-game table as a result of the curtailed League Two season and was the Latics’ second manager of the season already.
Kewell lasted just 14 games in charge of Notts County as was sacked after only two months and will become Oldham’s seventh boss since Abdallah Lemsagam took over as owner in 2018.
His arrival comes during a turbulent off-field period, with Oldham having a winding-up petition dismissed by the High Court in July after a debt owed to the tax office was cleared.
It came after Oldham said they avoided going into administration after they repaid money owed to two former owners.
