Weymouth manager Mark Molesley is on the verge of being announced as the Southend United new manager, Football Insider understands.
The 39-year-old has arrived at the Shrimpers’ training ground this morning and is expected to agree a deal that would see him take over the top job at Roots Hall.
A Southend source has told Football Insider that an agreement with Molesley is on the cusp of completion.
United have been without a manager since Sol Campbell left the club in June.
Since then, they have turned their attentions to Molesley, who has guided Weymouth to back-to-back promotions in recent seasons and taken them up to the Vanarama National League for the first time since 2009.
As well as his role with the Terras, the ex-midfielder also works with Bournemouth in a coaching capacity for the Cherries’ U23s.
