Bournemouth are set to hand Gary O’Neil their permanent head coach’s position, talkSPORT understands.
O’Neil is expected to sign a two-and-a-half-year contract as the Cherries prepare for their sale to American Bill Foley being ratified by the Premier League.
The 39-year-old took interim charge following the decision to sack Scott Parker earlier on in the campaign.
Despite Bournemouth being tipped to struggle at the bottom of the table, O’Neil has overseen an impressive run of results at the Vitality Stadium.
Since taking charge, the Cherries have taken 13 points from 11 Premier League games, including three wins, four draws and four defeats.
As a result, the south coast side find themselves in 14th spot in the table after 15 games, three points above the relegation zone.
The Cherries are awaiting Premier League approval on Foley’s £120m purchase of the south coast club and the Las Vegas-based businessman is now expected to stick with O’Neil.
