The four-man Club England board will sit down on Friday to begin the process of selecting Fabio Capello's successor adamant they will not be railroaded into appointing Harry Redknapp.

Overwhelming favourite for the job, it is thought Redknapp could be prized away from Tottenham, if not immediately, then at the end of the season. However, even though the 64-year-old ticks all the right boxes, FA chief executive Alex Horne is keen to ensure the correct procedures are followed before Capello's replacement is named.

"We understand the feeling of the nation and supporters," said Horne. "Fans of England are very important when it comes to choosing the right person for the job. But we have to sit down and look long term. We owe it to ourselves to write up the job brief and make sure we sit down calmly and ensure we have an exhaustive list."
