Southgate is believed to be open to a return to club management but the FA are hoping to convince him to stay on.

And the two parties are reportedly set to discuss his future in a post-World Cup debrief.

It is believed the FA do not have a succession plan in place if Southgate does leave, which is another factor behind their desire for him to continue.

But they will not stand in his way if he decides he is ready for a new challenge.

Southgate has been linked to the likes of Fulham and Nottingham Forest if he does decide to leave his England post.
