John Herdman would consider accepting an offer to become the new coach of the England women's team into consideration, should the Football Association approach the Canada boss.

The 38-year-old was linked with the job as soon as news of Hope Powell's sacking came through following a successful spell with the Canadians.

Herdman, who also coached New Zealand between 2006 and 2011, hails from County Durham and has revealed he would jump at the chance to return to his home country.

He told BBC Sport: "I think you’d have to listen. It’s your home country that’s ringing you and if they’re asking for help, you’d consider that situation.

“I’m just honoured that someone would even think of considering a little lad from Newcastle for a position like that.”

Powell was sacked on Tuesday following 15 years in charge of England after a disastrous European Championships in Sweden, during which England failed to even register a win.

However, while Herdman would be interested in the England job, he has reaffirmed his commitment to his current job.

"At the end of the day I have a big job here with some exciting players," Herdman added. "If I wasn't in the Canada job, you'd go 'I'd love to do that', but I'm in a big position here and have a massive responsibility at the same time."
