United Kingdom,Sports, Mon, 30 Apr 2012 IANS

London, April 30 (IANS) Roy Hodgson is set to be named the head coach of England after it was revealed the West Brom manager is in talks with the Football Association (FA).


The 64-year-old is the only candidate to have been interviewed for the role, despite many tipping Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp to succeed Fabio Capello, after the Italian quit the post in February, Xinhua reported.


But the FA have not approached the Tottenham boss, who watched his side keep their Champions League aspirations alive with a 2-0 win over Blackburn Sunday.


West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace Sunday granted permission for the FA to hold talks with their manager, and Hodgson has already had a conversation with FA chief David Bernstein.


"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," the FA said in a statement.


Hodgson is one of the most well-travelled coaches England has ever produced and has worked as head coach of Switzerland, United Arab Emirates and Finland.
