The English Football Association have appointed Gareth Southgate as England manager on a four-year deal.
The 46-year-old stepped up from his role as England Under-21s manager in September following Sam Allardyce’s departure.
Southgate took charge of four games, recording two wins and two draws as interim boss. He was reported to have signed a contract worth up to £2m a year.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the players over these past four games and I think there is huge potential,” said Southgate.
“I am extremely proud to be appointed England manager. However, I am also conscious getting the job is one thing, now I want to do the job successfully.
“I’m determined to give everything I have to give the country a team that they’re proud of and one that they’re going to enjoy watching play and develop.”
A BBC report states that the former defender, who made 57 appearances for England as a player, becomes the fourth permanent manager of the national team in as many years.
Southgate’s Three Lions had a comfortable World Cup qualifying win against Malta. His team would later labour to a goalless draw in Slovenia.
But the 3-0 win against Scotland earlier this month proved to be significant in his choice for the full-time England top job.
