TOKYO, July 24 (Reuters) - Nissan Motor Co Ltd is planning to cut more than 10,000 jobs globally to help turn around its business, a source said on Wednesday, showing a tough road ahead for the automaker which is also reeling from the ouster of former Chairman Carlos Ghosn.

The cuts include the 4,800 already announced in May, and will mostly be at factories overseas with low utilisation rates, said the person familiar with the matter, adding that the move would be announced along with financial results on Thursday.

The move was first reported by Kyodo late on Tuesday. Nissan told Reuters it had no comment.

The Renault-Nissan alliance has been under strain since the arrest and ousting of Ghosn late last year on charges of financial misconduct.
