Lancashire Country Cricket Club's coach Peter Moores is set for a return as England head coach.

Andy Flower's replacement will be announced at Lord's later this morning and it is understood that Moores is the chosen candidate.

The 51-year-old Lancashire coach previously held the job between 2007 and 2009, but was dismissed after disappointing results and a personality clash with then captain Kevin Pietersen.

If Moores is, as expected, appointed to replace his own successor then current limited-overs coach Ashley Giles would appear to be out of a job.
