Sheffield United assistant boss Stuart McCall is set to become Bradford manager, according to the Yorkshire Post.
McCall has been at Bramall Lane for five years and became Neil Warnock's number two since 2004 when he took over from David Kelly.
Warnock resigned as Blades boss on Tuesday following the south Yorkshire's club final day relegation from the Barclays Premiership and McCall had been expected to be one of the leading candidates to take over.
However, it appears the 42-year-old will return to the Valley Parade club to succeed Colin Todd.
The former Scotland midfielder started his career at Bradford and then moved on to Everton and Rangers before enjoying a second spell at Valley Parade where he spent four successful years.
