Notts County owner and chairman Alan Hardy has provided a further update on his efforts to appoint a new manager.
I am pleased to say we have now entered final negotiations with our preferred manager and expect to conclude a deal before the weekend.
It’s been a rigorous week of interviews but our chosen candidate has emerged as a clear front-runner.
He is tremendously excited about the challenge ahead and we are now completing the formalities of his appointment. As soon as the deal is done, we will make an announcement.
Steve Chettle will take charge of Saturday’s match at Morecambe and I would encourage all supporters to get behind him and the players.
Thank you for your patience and support.
