The full board meeting is scheduled on Wednesday but the finance committee of FA are going to hold a conference on Monday to finalize Southgate’s contract. Gareth Southgate has accepted the inclusion of break clause beforehand as he prepares to take managerial reins of England.
He will likely receive a salary around £1.3 million with substantial bonuses if England qualify for Russia and then reach the knockout stages.

The Former U-21 English manager will see his old seat vacant with the likes of Phil Neville stepping up for the job.
