The English FA have plans to make Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp their national team coach before the 2012 European Championships.
The People says an official approach could be made to Spurs for their manager BEFORE Fabio Capello's contract runs out next summer.
The possibility of Redknapp managing England at the finals is now being openly discussed in the corridors of power - and is rated 'probable' by top sources.
Redknapp could even be offered the post on a part-time basis this season, amid fears that the Three Lions will flop in Poland and Ukraine.
The only question is WHEN Redknapp takes charge.
