Blackpool closing in on Lee Clark?

Former Birmingham City boss Lee Clark is close to being appointed as Jose Riga's successor at Blackpool, according to a report.

Blackpool are reportedly close to appointing former Birmingham City boss Lee Clark as their new manager.

The 42-year-old was recently sacked by the Blues following their poor start to the Championship campaign.

The former Huddersfield Town boss kept the Midlands outfit in the second tier last season with a dramatic final-day draw at Bolton Wanderers.

Blackpool, who are seven points adrift of safety at the bottom of the table, are on the lookout for a new boss after dismissing head coach Jose Riga on Monday.

It is thought that Clark has held talks with Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston with a view to completing a deal today.

According to the Blackpool Gazette, Clark is eager to make a quick return to management and is keen on the role at Bloomfield Road.

Should a deal be agreed in the coming days, Clark's first match in charge could be against Ipswich Town on Saturday.
