Many have described Chelsea’s Potter as the obvious long-term successor to Southgate and he’s available at 7/2 to secure the position.

Newcastle chief Eddie Howe is fractionally behind in the betting market at 4/1 to swap St James’ Park for St George’s Park.

Pochettino, who revealed he was open to managing a national side, is further behind at 5s.

He recently told The Athletic: “Of course, my relationship with England has always been very good.

“We have a very good relationship with the academies, trying to develop young players for the national team. I feel so comfortable here. You never know what happens. I am open to everything.”

Steve Cooper is 6/1, ahead of Thomas Tuchel (10/1), Frank Lampard (11/1) and Steven Gerrard (14/1).

Southgate took charge in 2016 after Sam Allardyce’s contract was terminated after only 67 day.

He’s now managed 80 games as Three Lions boss, boasting a 61.3% win percentage having won 49 of those fixtures.

The 52-year-old guided England to a World Cup semi-final in 2018.

He also reached the 2020 European Championship final, which was only the second occasion an England manager had taken the country that far in a major tournament.

Southgate is under contract until 2024 having signed a new deal in November 2021.

He’s previously made it clear that he will not stay where he is not wanted following criticism of England’s disastrous Nations League campaign over the summer.

But the Football Association want him to stay on until at least Euro 2024 and the players are fully behind him.

England have cruised to the quarter-finals of the Qatar World Cup, and done in style having netted 12 goals in four matches – their joint-most at a single major tournament.

And ahead of Saturday’s clash with world champions France, Southgate was unwilling to discuss his long term future.

He told ITV : “I’ve got two years left on my contract, well, 18 months, and I’m thinking about France on Saturday nothing else.

“Well, what has been brilliant is when very few other people wanted me to stay they have always been very supportive so as a manager you value that support.”
