A promising start to his managerial career in League One with Burton has not gone unnoticed as Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink looks set to land a big job in the Championship.

Queens Park Rangers have been struggling to find form so far, and after failing to find a level of consistency under manager Chris Ramsey, they parted company with the manager at the start of November, and put Neil Warnock in charge on an interim basis until they found the right man for the job.

It appears as though they believe Hasselbaink to be that man, and according to Sky Sports, talks held on Thursday evening went well between the two parties.

Seeming to confirm those rumours, Warnock stated after his side’s 1-0 win over Reading earlier this week (thanks to a late, late Nedum Onuoha goal) that he was the man in line to take over the managerial job at the club, adding that "Jimmy will find it tough, but there's no reason why he can't be successful".

Meanwhile, it seems that Ramsey’s time at the club might not be done and dusted just yet, as there are reports that chairman Tony Fernandes has been in touch with him about coming back on board as an assistant to Hasselbaink.
