The Football Association reportedly want Gareth Southgate to extend his stay with England until 2026.
The 53-year-old’s contract expires in December, having penned his previous deal in 2021.
Southgate’s future looked in serious danger after the Three Lions’ quarter-final defeat to France at the 2022 World Cup.
However, he stayed in his role despite many fans not being happy with his defence-minded approach.
It was expected the former Middlesbrough manager would leave his position after the European Championship this summer.
But the Telegraph report the FA are keen on Southgate continuing in his job until 2026.
Speaking at the Nations League draw in Paris on Thursday, the English boss suggested he could extend his stay for a fifth major tournament.
His comments were reportedly seen as a positive by senior England figures who would love to keep him at the helm for a few more years.
Southgate was appointed as England manager in 2016, initially on an interim basis that was later made permanent.
He led his team to the semi-final of the 2018 World Cup, where they ultimately lost to Croatia.
The 53-year-old came very close to delivering major silverware when England made it to the final of the 2020 European Championship.
However, they came up short again as Italy triumphed on penalties at Wembley Stadium.
