The new England Under-21 manager is likely to be decided next week as final interviews are conducted by FA technical director John McDermott and Steve Morrow, the FA’s new head of player selection and talent strategy.
Frank Lampard, Sol Campbell, Paul Tisdale and Nicky Butt are thought to be in the running and the first round of interviews were completed last week with the initial short list.
The favoured two candidates will be invited back to St George’s Park this week to complete the process, with McDermott making his recommendation to the FA board next week. An appointment is likely to be made early next month.

England Under-21 failed to make the latter stages of this summer’s European Championships, going out at the group stages in March, which led to the departure of former boss Aidy Bothroyd, whose contract wasn’t renewed.
The Under-21 job will be the first major appointment made by McDermott, who began work with the FA in March, taking over from Les Reed.
