Gareth Southgate is being linked with the Aston Villa job.

The People says he is the FA's head of elite development and favourite to take the new technical director's post at Wembley.

But he could be tempted back into club management, especially at Villa where he was a big favourite with fans.

Southgate's only management job to date saw him fail to save Middlesbrough from relegation but his reputation has been restored by his work at the FA and as an ITV pundit.
