Steve Holland has agreed to become part of Gareth Southgate’s England team.
According to the Daily Mail, Southgate wants to make the 46-year-old his No.2 when he is confirmed as England manager this week.
The FA and Chelsea are thought to have agreed a deal allowing Holland to join the England setup.
HOWEVER, both parties are reportedly far from an agreement, with Chelsea wanting Antonio Conte’s assistant to split his time between the two roles as to not disrupt their season.
But, the problem is Southgate would rather have Steve Holland there full time.
Reports are saying that Holland is in talks to work with the Blues and the England National Team until the end of the season where he will move on and take up a full time role with Southgate.
Holland joined Chelsea back in 2009 as reserve team manager and has also worked under the likes of Andre Villas-Boas, Roberto Di Matteo, Rafa Benitez, Jose Mourinho and Guus Hiddink.
