Mark McGhee is closing in on the manager's job at Motherwell, Press Association Sport understands.
Stephen Craigan, who has been caretaker since Ian Baraclough departed the club last month, has pulled out of the running.
The 38-year-old former Motherwell captain, who had been Well's under-20s coach, had two matches in charge, a 2-1 win over Partick Thistle and 2-1 defeat at Dundee.
Ex-Motherwell player Simo Valakari had been considered but McGhee's experience looks to have proved crucial in the final part of the process.
