The FA have been granted permission by West Brom to speak to head coach Roy Hodgson about becoming the new manager of England.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp was the odds-on favourite to succeed Fabio Capello, who resigned in early February.

FA Chairman David Bernstein spoke to West Bromwich Albion Chairman Jeremy Peace about the possibility of speaking to Hodgson about the position and the FA have confirmed that approach has been accepted.

“I’m 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,” Bernstein said.

“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.”
