The 67-year-old has already made it clear that he wants to sign a two year extension on his deal to take him through to the 2018 World Cup – when he will be 70-years-old. This is despite overseeing a disappointing time in English football so far, being knocked out in the quarter finals of Euro 2012 and not even making out of the group stage in the 2014 World Cup.
Current FA chairman Greg Dyke has let it be known that no new deal will be negotiated for a long time yet.
He said: “I get on quite well with Roy and I chat to him all the time. We have not talked about contracts yet. We will have the discussion with Roy in the next nine months to a year.
“When we decided in Brazil that we wanted Roy to continue with his contract, we thought – ‘he’s got a contract, he sees it through’. Sometime in the next year we will discuss what happens afterwards. We genuinely haven’t discussed it.”
The Three Lions play against Lithuania on Friday, in a qualifier for Euro 2016, they have won every game since being knocked out of the World Cup in the summer.
