Former Sligo Rovers boss Ian Baraclough is set to be named the Northern Ireland u21’s manager in the next few days.
According to a report in The Times, the current Oldham assistant manager was interviewed by current Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neill for the role.
The Leicester man led Sligo Rovers to a League title, FAI Cup & Setanta Cup in his two year spell.
He also led Motherwell to safety in a relegation / promotion play off with Rangers in 2015 in the Scottish league.
Current boss Jim Magilton is set to return to his development role.
