(Reuters) - Former BP chief executive Tony Hayward will be named chairman of global mining giant Glencore Xstrata Plc and will be stepping down from his position as CEO of Genel Energy , the Daily Telegraph reported.

British-born Hayward, who was appointed interim chairman of Glencore Xstrata last May, was CEO of BP from 2007 to 2010 and left in the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

Hayward, 56, is expected to be confirmed in his new position on Thursday and will not leave Genel imminently but will spend increasing periods of time focused on his new role, according to the British newspaper.

Major shareholders in the FTSE-100 Glencore are understood to have insisted Hayward not take on the role of chairman while holding another full-time post.

Hayward will leave Genel after a successor has been found and a handover period allowed to take place.

Swiss-based commodity producer and trader Glencore's annual meeting is scheduled for May 20.
