Harry Kewell could be on his way out at Crawley - after 51 league games in charge.

Reds have granted Notts County permission to talk to their Aussie boss as they seek a successor to Kevin Nolan.

Kewell attended Notts’ recent Friday night fixture at home to Yeovil as guest of the Magpies chairman.

His assistant Warren Feeney previously worked for current Notts chief executive Jason Turner at Newport County.

Kewell is thought to be Notts’ top choice to take over after Nolan paid the price for a winless start to the season which has left them bottom of League Two.

The former Leeds star stabilised Reds last season, despite making few signings.

He was more active in the market this summer and skipper Jimmy Smith told The Argus this week he has built a squad capable of pushing for promotion.

A dramatic 3-2 win over Bury on Saturday left Crawley one point off the play-off zone in the early-season going.

It is understood Kewell was absent from training today.
