London:

West Brom manager Roy Hodgson says he would jump at the chance to manage England if offered the chance to replace Fabio Capello by the Football Associatiom.

"I don't know that (the England manager's job) is an ambition as such," the former Liverpool boss told talkSPORT on Sunday.

"It would be an honour of course if ever the offer came my way, because it's the pinnacle of success in a way and certainly of coaching success if you are ever invited to manage your own country."

Asked if he would take the job if offered it, Hodgson said: "Of course, I think that anyone would."

The former Liverpool boss has helped transform West Brom's fortunes since taking over the helm 15 months ago, with his club now virtually assured of topflight football for a third straight season.

While Tottenham's Harry Redknapp is the bookmakers' favourite for the job, Hodgson is next in the betting and is as short as 7/2 to land the post.
