Video report by ITV News Anglia's Rob Halden-Pratt

MK Dons look increasingly likely to have a new man in charge by the end of the week.

Hearts' boss Robbie Neilson is expected to join the League One club after his side play Rangers in the Scottish Premier League tomorrow.

That means his first game in charge could be against his predecessor Karl Robinson's new club Charlton.

Championship side Rotherham United could make a late bid to hijack MK Dons' move to land Hearts boss Robbie Neilson, according to reports.

The Millers were rocked by the resignation of Kenny Jackett after just 39 days in charge yesterday, and the Daily Mirror says they've now taken an interest in Neilson.

It's understood the Dons are still in advanced talks with Neilson and it remains to be seen whether he will be swayed by Rotherham's approach.

MK Dons have made an official approach to speak to Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson about their vacant managerial position.

The Dons are on the lookout for a new boss after parting company with Karl Robinson last month, but have so far been unable to find the right candidate.

However, they have now asked Scottish Premiership club Hearts for permission to hold talks with 36-year-old Neilson who has been in charge at Tynecastle since 2014.

The Dons say no further comment will be made until after Hearts' SPL match against Rangers on Wednesday night.

Milton Keynes Dons Football Club can confirm it has made an official approach for Heart of Midlothian’s head coach Robbie Neilson with regards to its vacant managerial position.

The club respects that Hearts has an important fixture with Rangers in the Scottish Premiership on Wednesday evening and, therefore, no further comment will be made until after that match.
