A report on BBC Sport tips Middlesbrough FC manager Steve McClaren as the successor to current English coach Sven-Goran Eriksson:
McClaren arrived at the FA's Soho Square headquarters at 1540 BST and was rushed inside, with a statement and news conference expected imminently.
The board meeting to discuss the successor to current coach Sven-Goran Eriksson finished before 1430 BST.
McClaren, currently manager of Middlesbrough, is also a coach in Eriksson's current England set-up.
The 45-year-old made his way to London from his Yorkshire home earlier on Thursday.
Bolton boss Sam Allardyce — who was also in the running for the job — has said he expects to miss out.
McClaren failed to come out for the post-match interviews after his Middlesbrough side's 1-1 draw at Allardyce's Bolton on Wednesday.
