Julian Dicks is set to return to management with Blue Square Bet South outfit Dorchester Town.
The former Hammer, who spent two spells at the club in the 1990s looks set to succeed the recently-departed Ashley Vickers at the Avenue Stadium after being confirmed as Town's 'preferred candidate' for the position.
Darren Lewis, speaking on behalf of the former West Ham captain told the Dorset Echo: "We have been asked what sort of package Julian would like, we have put one forward and we are just waiting to hear back. So we are in negotiations.
"Julian is very keen and I guess the club are as well. He feels he can take the club forward so hopefully we are not too far away from getting something sorted."
Dicks - who heads a short list that also contains former Portsmouth goalkeeper Alan Knight, Frome Town boss Darren Perrin and current caretaker Phil Simkin - has previously managed twice although both spells proved to be short-lived.
His first foray in management came at Wivenhoe Town in 2009, although that role was to last for just five months after Dicks left the Eastern Counties League side by mutual consent.
Three months later he was named as the manager of Grays Athletic, where he remained for almost two years before parting company with the Isthmian League Division One North in May of this year.
Prior to leaving Grays, Dicks was linked with a return to West Ham in a coaching capacity although that particular move failed to materialise.
