Allardyce holds FA talks - reports


Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce has reportedly held preliminary talks with the Football Association over the England managerial vacancy.

Allardyce has emerged as one of the favourites to take charge of the national side following Roy Hodgson's decision to step down in the wake of England's disappointing Euro 2016 and it has been reported that he has held preliminary talks with the FA over the job.

It has been claimed that Allardyce has a clause in his Sunderland contract which would allow him to leave the Stadium of Light in order to become England manager.

Allardyce was first linked with the position in 2006 but lost out when Steve McClaren was appointed as Sven Goran Eriksson's successor and earlier this week Sir Alex Ferguson backed him for the job should the FA decide to appoint a British manager.

Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has also been linked with the role.
