No new FA talks yet - Curbishley
Charlton boss Alan Curbishley
Charlton say they will allow Curbishley to take the England job if offered to him
Charlton boss Alan Curbishley has said that he has had no further discussions with the Football Association regarding the England managerial post.

Curbishley had informal talks with the FA in March but others are also in the frame to replace Sven-Goran Eriksson after this summer's World Cup finals.

And Curbishley told BBC Radio Five Live's Sportsweek programme: "That was the last anything was said to me.

"As far as I am aware the FA is still talking and nothing is finalised."

Other names linked to the battle to replace current England boss Eriksson after the World Cup include former Celtic manager Martin O'Neill and Bolton boss Sam Allardyce, with the FA wanting to make an appointment before the tournament starts this summer.

Curbishley added: "I knew when I had the meeting it was informal, that I wasn't the first person they had spoken to and I wasn't the last they were going to speak to."

The Addicks manager has been strongly linked with the post since his meeting with Barwick but insists that he is trying to ignore the mounting speculation until he is made an offer.

He said: "People will say do you want to do this or do you want that job.

"But you can't consider anything until someone looks you in the eye and says to you 'Do you want this job? It's yours if you want it'.

"Only then can you start thinking about things."
