Aidy Boothroyd has been named as the new permanent manager of the England Under-21s.
Oxford United boss Michael Appleton was also reportedly considered by the FA, but Boothroyd, who took temporary charge of the Young Lions when Southgate vacated the role for the top job in September, has been selected.
"I've been at the FA three years; this is the logical next step," BBC Sport quotes Boothroyd as saying. "I believe I am here on merit because I've worked in all four divisions and I've got an understanding of speaking to a League Two manager or a Premier League manager and the problems they have."
Boothroyd's first tournament with the England Under-21s will be this summer's European Championships in Poland.
