Gareth Southgate is set to be offered the England job by The FA, according to the Daily Mail.

The report claims that The FA’s five-man panel have made their decision, believing that Southgate is the right man to lead the country forward.

Southgate is set to be offered a four-year contract, ending after the 2020 European Championships – on a salary of £2m.

The England under-21 manager has been interim manager for the senior side over the last four games, with two wins and two draws. He has impressed The FA enough to convince them that he is the right man for the job.

The report says that Southgate should be appointed as England’s next permanent manager by the end of November, although there is no rush with England’s next friendly coming next March against Germany.

Southgate would have considered a return to club management if The FA had decided against making him England’s next manager.
