The Football Association of Wales has called a news conference for Monday afternoon in Cardiff, where the former captain and Manchester United Legend is expected to be unveiled.
Ryan Giggs who lost out on the Swansea job to Bob Bradley will be named Wales manager on a four-year deal on Monday, provided there is no late hitch, Giggs will be announced as the successor to Chris Coleman, who left for Sunderland in November.
Giggs, who has long been a target for the FAW, was one of the favourites for the role once Coleman departed after Wales failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.
Giggs’ only previous spell as a manager came when he took over at Manchester United for the final four games of the 2013-14 season following David Moyes’ sacking.
Giggs was assistant to Louis van Gaal at United for the following two campaigns, but has been without a club since leaving his role in United’s backroom staff when Jose Mourinho joined in 2016.
The panel set up to conduct the search, led by FAW chief executive Jonathan Ford, is expected to put the finishing touches to the agreement on Monday morning.
Craig Bellamy, Osian Roberts and Mark Bowen were also interviewed.
Giggs won 64 caps between 1991 and 2007 and captained his country – but he was criticised for regularly pulling out of squads and especially for missing friendly matches.
