Nottingham Forest are understood to be on the verge of unveiling former Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka as their new boss according to BBC Sport.

The 44-year-old Spaniard guided former club Boro to promotion to the English Premier League in his only other managerial role and was well-liked by the club’s fans.

Karanka is poised to take charge of a Forest side which dumped English Premier League giants Arsenal out of the FA Cup on Sunday and after hearing news of his imminent appointment at The City Ground, fans of The Reds were generally pleased with their new arrival.

Karanka will take charge of a Forest side which are currently in 14th position in the Sky Bet Championship table. His first match as The Reds boss is likely to be on Saturday evening when Aston Villa are the visitors to The City Ground.
