The Sunderland boss has been linked with the vacant position for weeks
Sam Allardyce looks set to be unveiled as the next England boss within the next 24 hours, according to Sky Sports News.
The current Sunderland manager is in Hartlepool tonight ahead of a friendly for his current club but according to reports, he looks set to leave his post with the Black Cats in favour of the national team job.
He has been linked with the post for a few weeks now and he was one of a number of candidates to be linked. Steve Bruce, who is currently in charge of Hull, has also been interviewed about potentially taking the job.
However, it appears that the FA have made up their mind and decided to go with Sam Allardyce.
The former West Ham and Bolton boss has been linked with the job in previous years but never landed it but appears this could be the year he gets his chance as the manager of England.
FA Chief Executive Martin Glenn has claimed that they are not looking for a “short-term mercenary” but are instead looking for someone who can be in charge for the long-term and help transform the fortunes of the national team.
England have failed to impress at the last few international tournaments and Allardyce will be hoping that it all changes when he takes over the job.
