Former Portsmouth, Tottenham and Queens Park Rangers manager, Harry Redknapp is in line to be named the next national team coach of Nigeria’s national team, the Super Eagles.
Redknapp has been approached to take over the national side full time.
A source close to the team revealed also he could be named as the next permanent manager within a few days.
The role is widely seen as the biggest job in African football.
Redknapp is largely untested at international level after narrowly missing out on the England job to Roy Hodgson.
