Gareth Southgate appointed England manager on £6.3million deal until 2020

Gareth Southgate has promised to “give everything” after finally landing the England job on a permanent basis.

The former interim and Three Lions Under-21 boss has penned a four-year deal worth £6.3million after the FA were persuaded to increase his salary by Southgate’s representatives.

Southgate’s £1.8m-a-year wage is still substantially less than the £3m his predecessor Sam Allardyce was on per year.

The 46-year-old agreed to a break clause to be activated if England flop at the 2018 World Cup finals, in return for an improvement in his basic wage.

The FA plan to unveil the ex-Middlesbrough gaffer at a press conference on Thursday.

Southgate said: “I am extremely proud to be appointed England manager. However, I’m also conscious that getting the job is one thing, now I want to do the job successfully.

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with the players over these past four games and I think there’s huge potential.

“I’m determined to give everything I have to give the country a team that they’re proud of and one that they’re going to enjoy watching play and develop. For me, the hard work starts now.”
