Hodgson Expected To Be New England Manager

Roy Hodgson is expected to be the new England manager.

West Bromich Albion granted permission for The FA to speak with Roy regarding the position.

This follows an approach from FA Chairman David Bernstein to West Bromwich Albion Chairman Jeremy Peace.

Mr Berstein said: I'm very grateful to Jeremy and all at West Bromwich Albion for their co-operation in allowing us to approach Roy, who I have since spoken with.

"Roy is the only manager we have approached and we remain on course to make an appointment within the timescale we set-out soon after Fabio Capello's departure.

"Further conversations will now take place with Roy and my Club England colleagues before any further announcements can be made."
