Paul Scholes has been appointed manager of League Two side Oldham Athletic, Sky Sports News understands.

The former Manchester United midfielder will begin work at Boundary Park on Monday with the club set to unveil him at an official press conference on Monday afternoon.

An EFL board meeting decided last week there was not a conflict of interests because of Scholes' 10 per cent stake in Salford City who, despite playing in the National League, are fighting for promotion to League Two.

Sky Sports News understands the only restriction to the 44-year-old taking over as manager of Oldham is he will not be allowed to sign players from, or sell to, Salford City.
