It only seems to be a matter of days before VfL Wolfsburg will announce who will take over as head coach from Bruno Labbadia at the end of the season.

On Monday, Wolfsburg sporting director Jörg Schmadtke told Kicker that negotiations with Labbadia's potential successor have been "practically completed".

According to Sportbuzzer, the hottest candidate is Oliver Glasner, the coach of Austrian side LASK Linz.

Apparently, there has recently been a breakthrough in the negotiations between the parties with official confirmation expected within the coming days.

Wolfsburg have also been linked with André Villas-Boas, but 'Die Wölfe' are understood to have decided not to hire the 41-year-old after holding talks with him.
