England manager Gareth Southgate and his assistant coach Steve Holland have both agreed new deals up until December 2024.

Southgate, whose previous contract was set to run out after the World Cup in Qatar in December 2022, has been in charge since November 2016 when he initially took over as a caretaker boss following the departure of Sam Allardyce.

The new deal means Southgate and Holland will also oversee qualifying for the Euro 2024, which is due to start in March 2023.

"I am delighted that Steve and I have been able to extend our stay in our respective roles," said Southgate.

"It remains an incredible privilege to lead this team. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mark [Bullingham, FA CEO), John [McDermott, FA technical director] and the Board for their support - and of course the players and support team for their hard work.

"We have a great opportunity in front of us and I know they and the fans are all excited about what this squad could achieve in future."

Southgate guided England to the final of rescheduled European Championship in July when his side were beaten by Italy in a penalty shootout.

The 51-year-old also led England to the World Cup semi-finals for the first time in 28 years in 2018 and England finished third in the UEFA Nations League in 2019.

It has been reported Southgate will earn more than £5m a year with his new contract.
