Queens Park Rangers sacked Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink on Saturday after the Dutchman oversaw just 14 wins in 47 games since his arrival at Loftus Road in December 2015.
According to the London Evening Standard, Sherwood, who has been out of work since leaving Villa in October last year, is expected to be announced as QPR’s new boss on Wednesday evening after having talks with director of football Les Ferdinand .
The former Tottenham Hotspur boss, who worked with Ferdinand at Spurs’ academy, spoke to the Championship outfit about replacing
Harry Redknapp last year, but after failing to agree a salary, Sherwood took on the job at Villa.
It has also been reported that Chris Ramsey will be promoted to assistant coach.
