Former England manager Glenn Hoddle says he is open to talks with the Football Association about a role with the national team.
Hoddle, who made 58 appearances for England as a player and managed the national team between 1996 and 1999, would welcome the chance to succeed Roy Hodgson but says he is willing to help out in whatever role the FA suggests.
Hoddle managed England in the 1998 World Cup, where they were knocked out on penalties by Argentina in the last 16, but was sacked a year later for non-footballing reasons, after he suggested disabled people were punished for "karma from another lifetime"..
"I am flattered that people in football are saying that perhaps I should have another go at it," Hoddle told ITV.
"I've not had contact from the FA but if they did come then I would talk to them about whatever role they want. But I can assure you there has been no contact."
However, the 58-year-old says the three-man selection panel of FA chief executive Martin Glenn, technical director Dan Ashworth and vice-chairman David Gill may already have a candidate in mind.
"The bottom line is; if they come and want to talk, I'll talk. They might just want some feedback, they might have their guy already," he continued.
