Premier League club interested in appointing Gareth Southgate after Euro 2024 ends

England boss Gareth Southgate is reportedly under consideration to take over at a Premier League club after Euro 2024 ends.

Southgate has been in charge of the Three Lions senior team since 2016, though there has been speculation that Euro 2024 could be his last major tournament in charge.

According to the Daily Mail, the FA have been preparing for Southgate's potential departure, with Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola viewed as the 'dream' candidate.

The former Middlesbrough and Aston Villa defender has refused to rule out an exit from the national team post, with his contract expiring in December 2024.

BBC Sport, meanwhile, report that the FA are 'happy' with Southgate's performance as manager and want him to extend his stay until after the 2026 World Cup.

But according to The Sun, Southgate has emerged as one of the contenders to take over at Crystal Palace, where he would replace former England boss Roy Hodgson.

Hodgson has come under increasing pressure in recent weeks due to Palace's poor form, and reports claim that chairman Steve Parish considered sacking him before the 3-2 win over Sheffield United earlier this month.

The above report adds, though, that any appointment of Southgate would happen after England's Euro 2024 campaign comes to a close, with the possibility described as a 'long-shot' at this stage.

It is claimed that former Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper is chairman Parish's frontrunner to replace Hodgson, while Lille head coach Paulo Fonseca is another option.

Ipswich boss Kieran McKenna is also seen as a favourite, while ex-Fulham manager Scott Parker, Graham Potter and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have also been linked with the Selhurst Park role.

Hodgson's current deal at Palace lasts until the end of the season, at which point he will hope to have helped the Eagles avoid relegation from the Premier League.

They are currently five points above the bottom three, with a game in hand, ahead of their home clash against Chelsea on Monday evening.
