Francis Gillot looks set to step into the coaching hotseat at Sochaux after both he and club president Jean-Claude Plessis confirmed they were close to an agreement.

The 47-year-old will replace caretaker manager Jean-Luc Ruty at the helm of the Ligue 1 strugglers who have been without a permanent coach since sacking Frederic Hantz on December 12.

"Gillot has it in his grasp," Plessis told French sports daily L´Equipe. "There are just a couple of details to sort out, but it could happen tomorrow (Monday)."
