Chris Coleman is expected to be named as Gary Speed's successor as Wales manager on Thursday.

The Football Association of Wales have called a press conference to be held at St David's Hotel in Cardiff Bay at midday, where the former Fulham and Coventry manager's appointment is set to be confirmed.

The 41-year-old had revealed he was set to hold talks with Welsh football chiefs this week following his departure from Greek side Larissa, having emerged as the favourite to land the role after Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs reportedly turned down the chance to take the job.
