Gareth Southgate looks to be a step closer to being named the next permanent England manager when he will meet FA officials on Monday for what is expected to be an interview for the position.

Southgate was in charge of the Engand Under-21 side before taking the senior role for four matches following the sacking of Sam Allardyce.

Under Southgate England beat Malta and Scotland in World Cup qualifiers and drew with Slovenia before a 2-2 friendly draw with Spain on Tuesday and he has since confirmed that he is seeking the job on a permanent basis.

The former England international will hold discussions with FA chairman Gregg Clarke, chief executive Martin Glenn, technical director Dan Ashworth and independent panel member, Graeme Le Saux and Howard Wilkinson.

FA chief Glenn has already indicated that Southgate is the heavy favourite for the role, saying: ""He's (Southgate) made it clear over the last week that he's convinced he wants the job. Clearly, his candidacy has become much stronger."

When asked about interviewing other candidates, he said: "Potentially. Why would I say anything definite? It's an interview process and we have to be discreet."
