A report claims that Preston North End will announce their new interim manager on Thursday.

Preston North End will reportedly announce their new interim manager on Thursday following the dismissal of Graham Westley.

The 44-year-old was relieved of his duties following Preston's 3-1 defeat to Yeovil Town on Tuesday, with the club just five points above the relegation zone in League One.

However, according to BBC Sport, Preston expect to have a new interim boss in place by Thursday.

A statement from the club on Wednesday read: "Graham oversaw a fundamental change in reducing the wage bill in line with the financial fair play criteria and brought together a whole new squad of players last summer.

"After an initially encouraging start to the season regrettably results have not been acceptable and the board felt that a change of manager was the only way forward. Graham leaves with our thanks and best wishes for the future."

Westley took charge of Preston in January 2012.
