Dutchman would welcome approach from FA

Sky Sports sources understand former Holland manager Guus Hiddink is interested in becoming the next England boss following Fabio Capello's resignation. Capello stepped down on Wednesday night after discussions with the Football Association following their decision to go over the Italian's head and strip John Terry of the England captaincy. The FA have previously stated they are keen for the next Three Lions boss to be English, with Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp a hot favourite to fill the role. However, Dutchman Hiddink has reportedly put himself in the frame and would welcome an approach over the role. The 65-year-old is a proven international manager with a number of teams in major tournaments. His most notable achievements include leading Holland to the semi-finals of the 1998 World Cup, as well as guiding South Korea to a fourth-placed finish in the 2002 edition of the tournament.
