Neil Warnock is expected to take charge of Queens Park Rangers for their game against Leeds at Loftus Road on Saturday.
It is understood Rangers are still interviewing candidates to succeed manager Chris Ramsey, who was sacked on November 5, and hope to make an appointment next week.
Former Sheffield United, Crystal Palace and Leeds boss Warnock rejoined Rangers, who he managed and took to the Premier League in 2011, in a first-team advisory role in October, and has been in caretaker charge since Ramsey's departure.
But he was not in the dugout for the Rs' defeat at Middlesbrough on Friday night due to personal reasons, leaving his temporary assistant Kevin Blackwell at the helm.
Several managers have been touted as possible contenders to replace Ramsey, including Tim Sherwood and Nigel Pearson, but it is understood neither are in contention for the job.
Pearson, who was sacked by Leicester in the summer, held talks over the vacant Fulham head coach job last week before those discussions stalled.
Burton Albion also denied reports last week that they had been approached by QPR for their manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
