Former West Brom boss will lead his country at the European Championships this summer
The FA have called a 4pm press conference where they are likely to confirm Roy Hodgson as the new England manager.
The 64-year-old will replace Fabio Capello, who resigned from the position in February.
The FA confirmed on Sunday that they had been granted permission by former club West Brom to discuss the position, while Hodgson met officials at Wembley on Monday afternoon.
Hodgson will likely be in charge for this summer's European Championships in Poland and the Ukraine.
England have been drawn in Group D along with Ukraine, Sweden and France.
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp was the odds-on favourite with the bookies to succeed Capello, however the FA have said that Hodgson is the only candidate they have spoken to regarding the job.
