Dean Windass reckons there’s a chance Gareth Southgate could become the next Tottenham manager depending on how England fare at Euro 2020, amid a report from BBC Sport saying the FA could extend his deal.
The Three Lions face Germany in their crunch last 16 clash tonight, with Southgate’s side now fancied by many to go all the way following France and Holland’s recent exits.

However, should England exit the competition later tonight, Windass thinks the 50-year-old could consider a return to club management.
Southgate’s only previous experience of that was during a three-year spell at boss of Middlesbrough, which ended disastrously following their relegation to the Championship.
But according to the Guardian, the England manager has emerged as a recent candidate to replace Jose Mourinho at Tottenham.
It’s been more than 70 days since Spurs sacked the Portuguese, which has led to a painful search for a replacement.
Windass, though, exclusively told The Transfer Tavern that despite not managing in club football for 12 years, Southgate would be an ideal fit in north London:
“What about Gareth Southgate? After the Euros, does he want to manage in the Premier League?
“I think Gareth Southgate will be a manager in the Premier League again, if he doesn’t do well in the Euros he could resign.
“All of these discussions could go on behind closed doors, but Southgate would be a good fit for Spurs.”
