Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is edging closer to retirement.

The Daily Mail says Ferdinand’s retirement at the end of the season looks all the more likely, with the top football pundit role on BT Sport waiting for him.

The 35-year-old, who is on a one-year contract at Manchester United with the option for another season, is not expected to make up his mind about his playing future until much nearer the end of the current campaign

But BT Sport bosses make no secret of the fact that their main football analyst seat is being kept warm for Ferdinand, who is already under contract to the station for a variety of programming.
