From ESPN - January 17, 2018

Phil Neville has confirmed he wants to be the next manager of England Women.

The former England, Everton and Manchester United player has been in talks with the Football Association about taking on the role.

The FA has been tight-lipped on plans for the permanent successor to Mark Sampson, who was sacked last September.

But Neville has emerged as the most likely candidate after a host of names linked with the job pulled out of the running.

He has never worked in the women's game but said: "I am in talks with the FA and the discussions will continue. I am excited to see how those discussions turn out.''

He added: "Hopefully the process will end up with me getting the job. It's been rigorous, it's been tough, but I think I have shown my commitment in the fact that I do want the job.''
