Former England manager Glenn Hoddle believes the Football Association will want Harry Redknapp in place for Euro 2012 rather than plump for a stop-gap appointment.
The Spurs boss remains the overwhelming favourite for the national team position, although there are suggestions a temporary boss could be in charge at Euro 2012. Stuart Pearce would be a logical short-term solution, while some have called for the temporary reappointment of a former England boss like Terry Venables or Hoddle.
The latter does not think such a scenario is likely, and said: "I think Harry will take the job and I think whoever takes the job should take it into the Euros. Whether they want to appoint a manager like myself, who has done it before and has it on a shorter term scenario, and is experienced - there aren't many around - I don't think that is going to happen."
