According to the Daily Mail, Neville has impressed by Scoulding's work since he joined Roy Hodgson's team.

The video technician had worked with Hodgson at Fulham and Liverpool before being reuniting with the 68-year-old at the FA. He is expected to sign a deal to work alongside Neville before the weekend. 

Gary will link up with his brother Phil, who has been working as a coach at Valencia since the start of the season.

The former Sky Sports pundit has been heralded for his fantastic analysis alongside Jamie Carragher on Monday Night Football and has often been tipped to enjoy a successful career in management.

The 40-year-old has been touted as a potential successor to Hodgson for the England job and his chances will be done no harm with a strong six-month spell in La Liga.

England's current boss insisted Neville's dedication to helping the national team at Euro 2016 will not be affected by his new role and wished the Manchester United legend the best of luck in his first managerial job.
