John Eustace is expected to be confirmed as the new Blackburn Rovers manager later today with Jon Dahl Tomasson reportedly set to take the Sweden job.

Sky Sports News has been told there is a verbal agreement between Eustace and the club, but contracts have yet to be signed.

It is understood that Tomasson has officially left Blackburn Rovers after an agreement for his departure was reached.

He is expected to take the role of Sweden head coach in the coming days.

Blackburn are keen to get Eustace in as soon as possible, so that he can have at least one training session with his new squad before Saturday's Championship home game against Stoke.
