Robbie Neilson set to switch Hearts for MK Donsby Jack Kitson / 30 November 2016, 11:26Tweet
MK Dons look to have finally found a new manager in Robbie Neilson.
According to Sky Sports News Neilson is set to leave his position in the Hearts dugout after tonight's league clash at home to Rangers, in order to venture south of the border where he will become the successor to Karl Robinson at MK Dons.
The Dons parted ways with Robinson just under six weeks ago, with the 36-year-old since putting pen to paper to become the new Charlton boss, replacing Russell Slade.
The Buckinghamshire club have been linked with a whole host of high profile names, including Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Ryan Giggs, but now appear to have found their man in Neilson.
During his playing days Neilson spent 10 years at Hearts, while he went on to don the shirt of Leicester, Dundee United and Brentford.
Neilson returned to Tynecastle in 2013 as coach to the U20s Development manager, and went on to become the club's boss in May 2014.
In his first season in charge Neilson led his troops to the Scottish Championship (2014/15), and then 3rd spot on their return to the Scottish Premier League last term.
Neilson, who has reportedly turned down an approach from Rotherham, now appears to be trading a team up in 4th (but could be 2nd should they beat Rangers) in the SPL to a side down in 19th in England's third-tier - just two points above the relegation zone.
An appointment is expected to be made on Thursday, although it's not known if Neilson will be in charge for MK Dons' FA Cup clash with Robinson's Charlton on Saturday.
