It's not just players that look for new jobs at the end of the season, managers need to look for better options as well. The question is, 'is there a better job than the England one?'

There has been no inkling that Gareth Southgate is unhappy as manager of the England national team, but situations can quickly change.

He could be poached to take over a top four Premier League side and feel he wants to do that rather than be an international manager.

Personally, I cannot see Southgate leaving the England job until the fans get sick of him. And at the moment, he is still a darling in the eyes of the supporters.

If Southgate does leave for a better offer, here are the top four potential candidates ready to take over in the hot seat:

Next England Manager Tips: Eddie Howe @ 3/1 Paddy Power

Eddie Howe is the current manager of Bournemouth and he has been tipped for bigger and better things for years. He first took over as the Cherries manager in December 2008. He opted to leave the club in January 2011 to try his hand at being the boss at Burnley, it didn’t work out and he left the club in October 2012 citing ‘personal reasons. He was not out of work long, as that very same month he returned to Bournemouth as manager. He gained promotion with Bournemouth in April 2015, and up until this day the Cherries are still in the top-flight of English football – all thanks to Eddie Howe. The England role is massive for anyone, but a young English manager will always get the support of the fans.

Next England Manager Tips: Graham Potter @ 7/1 Paddy Power

I’m not sure many England fans would be jumping for joy at the prospect of Graham Potter being the next England manager, but the fact is, he is a young English manager who is doing a decent job in the Premier League as manager of Brighton & Hove Albion. Whether the FA would go for someone who hasn’t been managing in the top-flight of English football for that long, remains to be seen. But fans are always moaning that the manager should be English and Potter is.

Next England Manager Tips: Arsene Wenger @ 10/1 Paddy Power

Arsene Wenger is not English, that’s safe to say. He is a quality manager and has won the Premier League three times, the FA Cup seven times and the Community Shield seven times. But he has never managed at international level and some fans might not take to him like they didn’t with Sven-Goran Eriksson and Fabio Capello. Wenger is a born winner, but I’m not sure he is the right man to replace Southgate.

Next England Manager Tips: Sean Dyche @ 10/1 Paddy Power

Sean Dyche is another English manager that would get the players playing with their heart on their sleeve. Dyche is a very passionate man and very loyal to his players. Whether his tactics would work well at international level, I’m not sure. He would give everything to the role, and you would never be able to question his intentions. Out of the four I have covered; he is the one I would most prefer.
