Liam Rosenior has been relieved of his duties as interim manager at Derby County, with the League One club keen on appointing Rotherham’s Paul Warne as his replacement.
Derby’s owners have been evaluating Rosenior’s position since taking the club out of administration in July and have made an approach for Warne.
Warne has done an impressive job at Rotherham, who are eighth in the Championship, and it is unclear whether he would be willing to drop a division to take charge of Derby.
Derby are outside the playoff places on goal difference. They lost to Plymouth and Lincoln this month but beat Wycombe last Saturday in their most recent match.
