Doncaster Rovers are closing in on the appointment of their new manager, according to the Yorkshire Post.

The League One side have been in the hunt for a new boss after Darren Ferguson resigned from his post earlier this month.

Their candidates for the role looks to have been narrowed down to three. Stuart McCall still leads the way and is the favourite. The Scottish boss has been looking for a new job since he was harshly sacked by Bradford City in February, despite the club being in the top six in League One at the time.

The former Rangers and Motherwell boss has experience of managing in the third tier and is a decent option for Doncaster. He guided Bradford to the League One Play-Off final in 2016 but his side missed out on promotion to the Championship at the expense of Millwall.

Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink is another name that has been linked with Doncaster. The former Royal Antwerp, Burton Albion, QPR and Northampton Town boss is also looking to get back into management after his last two spells at the helm have not worked out.

The Dutch boss won the League Two title with Burton in 2015 and they were in the automatic promotion places in League One when he left them for QPR in 2016. However, his spell with the Championship side and his most recent stint at Northampton have ending in sackings and he now wants another chance in the game.

Gary Caldwell is a new name to enter the frame. He has previously managed Wigan Athletic and Chesterfield and the Doncaster job would be a great route for him to get back into management. He guided Wigan to the League One title in 2016.
