Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has revealed that he would be interested in becoming the England head coach in the future.

The 51-year-old signed an eight-year contract with the Geordies last week, but is open to coaching the national team at some point in his career.

"I do have ambitions internationally, I would like to do that at some point," he told The Sunday Mirror. "Hopefully, I will see this contract out and then see what I'm going to do later on.

"I have always felt that a person can be a success as England manager. I won't change my opinion on that, but I don't think it's easy.

"Roy Hodgson probably has a tough spell as England manager because our pool of players is not as great as it used to be.

"Ultimately my ambition might reach that conclusion: to be England manager. It's not something I would not do and it's not something I want to do right now."

Pardew has managed Reading, West Ham United, Charlton Athletic and Southampton in his career.
