Harry Redknapp has revealed he would be interested in joining the Football Association commission.

The FA chairman Greg Dyke has set up the panel, formed by former players, FA board members, representatives from the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) and the League Managers' Association (LMA), to enquire about the state of the England football team, and what can be done to improve England as an international side.

And the QPR manager says he would be willing to help the FA in anyway he can.

Redknapp told talksport: "Yeah, I’d do anything to help. In that situation if he [Dyke] felt I could be of some use certainly I would, yeah.”

Dyke set up the panel last month, after revealing he was "frightened" by the number of foreign players outnumbering the English players in the Premier League.

Amazingly, only 30 percent of the players currently playing in the top flight are eligible to wear the three lions shirt.

Earlier it was confirmed that the former England manager Glenn Hoddle has accepted an invitation to be on the panel, a choice that Redknapp agrees with.

“Glenn Hoddle is a fantastic choice. He wants to play the game what I call the right way. He wants people with ability to pass the ball, he wants to play from the back" he said.

And the 66-year-old already has ideas about what England should do differently, so they can succeed at tournaments.

“We go to European Championships and World Cups and we don’t play. We give the ball away, turn it over too easily, other teams keep the ball against us and we end up getting football lessons.

“I love watching Swansea play, I loved watching Wigan last season under Roberto Martinez, even though they got relegated, because the football they played was fantastic. That’s how I want to see England play.”
