Southgate set to be named England boss

Press AssociationPress Association 24/11/2016

Gareth Southgate could be named England manager as early as Monday, with reports suggesting the Football Association has already offered him the job.

Southgate's appointment is considered a fait accompli after he impressed a five-man interview panel at St George's Park, underlining the groundwork already undertaken during a four-match stint as interim boss.

The fact that no further interviews have been conducted effectively settled the matter in Southgate's favour but it was initially thought a final announcement would not take place until it had been ratified at an FA board meeting on Wednesday.

But reports in The Sun and Daily Telegraph suggested a firm offer has already been made and a deal could be made public at the start of next week.
