England Under-21 manager Gareth Southgate has no interest in succeeding Roy Hodgson as boss of the senior national team.
The 45-year-old has not been offered the role or spoken to the Football Association since the weekend.
Hodgson resigned after four years in charge following the shock Euro 2016 last-16 defeat by Iceland on Monday.
The FA was considering Southgate in an interim role as it searches for Hodgson’s successor.
On Tuesday, chief executive Martin Glenn said the FA wants a new manager in place for the opening World Cup qualifier against Slovakia on 4 September.
However, if the right man was not available by then he said former England defender Southgate would be the “obvious choice” as an interim boss – and did not rule out appointing a foreign manager.
Arsene Wenger is thought to be among those in the FA frame, with his Arsenal contract due to expire at the end of the season. Former Paris St-Germain coach Laurent Blanc is also reportedly a name interesting the FA.
