Ryan Giggs is set to be named as Chris Coleman's successor as Wales manager later this afternoon.

The Football Association of Wales said it would announce the identity of the new manager on Twitter ahead of a 2pm press conference at Hensol Castle in the Vale of Glamorgan.

Giggs, 44, has been the clear favourite for the role since he declared his interest in the job last month, saying: "I've played for Wales and I've said that I want to go back into coaching.Obviously that is one of the top jobs."

The former Wales and Manchester United winger will begin what he has described as "one of the top jobs" in coaching.

This will be Giggs' first permanent job in management.
