Ryan Giggs will be confirmed as Wales manager on Monday

Ryan Giggs

Ryan Giggs will be announced as the new manager of Wales on Monday.

Ran Giggs is the favourite for the role, having been interviewed for the role last week, with Craig Bellamy, Coleman's former assistant Osian Roberts and Mark Bowen, who has left his position as Stoke assistant manager, also thought to be contenders.

Giggs recently rejected the chance to rejoin Manchester United as a youth coach.

The FAW did not want to waste time after conducting the interviews and their ambition was to have the new man in place in time for the draw for the UEFA Nations League, which will be held in Switzerland on January 24.

The former Fulham player resigned in November to take over at Sunderland, leaving the Welsh FA to search for a new boss who could replicate the success seen at Euro 2016, where they reached the semi-finals. After overseeing their end to the season, Giggs acted as Louis van Gaal's assistant for two years.

And, barring any late hitch, the 44-year-old is expected to get his first full-time taste of management.

But Coleman's departure came on the back of Wales failing to qualify for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Wales are in action next at the China Cup in March when they will take part in a four-team tournament with the hosts, the Czech Republic and Uruguay.
