According to AD, Koeman is the KNVB’s choice to replace Dick Advocaat and will sign a two-year contract, with the option of another two years, next week.

The 54-year-old, who has previously coached the likes of Benfica, Valencia, Feyenoord, Southampton, Ajax and PSV, has been out of work since being sacked by Everton earlier in the season.

Koeman reportedly met with the KNVB in Amsterdam on Friday and has decided on his technical staff. Kees van Wonderen is set to be named his assistant, while Patrick Lodewijks is likely to be the new goalkeeping coach.

Nico-Jan Hoogma is also set to be named as the new technical director of the KNVB.
