IF Elfsborg appear to have dropped a major hint on Aberdeen's pursuit of Jimmy Thelin.

The Swedish manager has been heavily linked with a move to the Pittodrie hotseat.

And despite initially appearing to distance himself from Aberdeen links, Thelin is now reportedly set to take up the role at the end of the season.

Now, Elfsborg chiefs have dropped a hint over a possible managerial switch with Thelin set to finalise a move to Scotland.

The club have announced a press conference regarding the manager position will be held this afternoon.

A statement read: "IF Elfsborg invites the media to a press conference regarding the manager position.

"A warm welcome to the media center at Borås Arena today, Tuesday 16 April at 14:00."

Reports this week have suggested Thelin has bid farewell to his players ahead of the move to Aberdeen.

After Elfsborg's first defeat of the new season - a 3-0 defeat to Hammarby - Thelin faced questions on the links with Aberdeen.

 On the matter, he said: "We'll see what the future holds. We cannot anticipate what happens now.

"Right now I'm in Elfsborg and I'm only focusing on Elfsborg. I won't talk about anything else at this point.

"I am used to there being a lot of speculation in this industry - it always works this way."

Quizzed on whether his player had asked him about the move, he added:  "Everything that happens stays in the locker room."
