Sol Campbell has met Football Association chiefs over the vacant England Under-21 job.

Sportsmail revealed earlier this month that Campbell had applied for the position after being asked to enter the process following an approach from sporting recruitment specialists Nolan Partners.

And the former Southend and Macclesfield boss held talks over the position on Thursday, with the meeting understood to have taken place at St George’s Park.

A number of contenders are being considered by the FA for the vacancy with the Young Lions 

Whether Campbell emerges as the successful candidate remains to be seen, with Justin Cochrane, current head coach for England’s U17s, Ian Foster, the current U19s head coach, Liam Rosenior, Steve Cooper, Mark Warburton and Paul Simpson all believed to be contenders.

Aidy Boothroyd was told his contract with the FA would not be renewed following England’s disappointing campaign at the recent European Under-21 Championships.

Should Campbell land the job, it would be his first one back in management since leaving Southend in June 2020.
