Reports in the Daily Mirror confirm that Hogdson hopes to be given a new deal, ensuring that he can lead a team that he’s built to the next World Cup in Russia.

The 67-year-old’s current £3.5m-a-year-deal has not yet been extended, but Hodgson hopes that a decent showing in Europe next summer will earn him an extended stay in his position.

Hodgson is well supported by the FA hierarchy, but his poor showing at last summer’s World Cup in Brazil has raised doubts among supporters. However, a perfect start to our latest qualifying campaign has restored a sense of optimism.

According to the source, senior players such as Wayne Rooney and Leighton Baines have also confirmed their support of Hodgson, who has been in charge since our Euro 2012 campaign in Ukraine and Poland.

The former Fulham, Liverpool and West Brom boss wants to stay at the helm long enough to see the likes of Raheem Sterling, Luke Shaw, Jack Wilshere and Harry Kane reach their potential as international players.
