League One Crewe currently struggling at the foot of the table have lined up former Burnley boss Steve Cotterill as their new manager according to Setanta Sports.

Crewe’s last manager was Steve Holland who departed last month

Railwaymen stalwart and former manager, Dario Gradi has since been placed in temporary charge.

It is understood the board met last week to discuss a number of managerial options before deciding to fully endorse Cotterill as the right man to rescue the club from their current plight and save them from relegation to League Two.

Cotterill has been out of management since departing Turf Moor in November 2007 and has recently stated his desire to return to football.
