Pearce, who has been in the post for six years, will see his current contract expire after this summer's European Championships in Israel.

Brooking intends to discuss whether he will continue with the 50-year-old at a Club England meeting next month and will ask about his club ambitions.

He told The Sun: "I'll sit down with him and see where he is. Over the holiday period, we haven't had that time.

"We've got a Club England meeting in about a month's time and will certainly indicate what the intentions are.

"We'll have a talk with Stuart, so he knows where it is as well."

Pearce took interim charge of the senior England team last season but did not feel ready to take over full-time when Fabio Capello departed.

Brooking added: "At the time, with the seniors, he said he wasn't quite ready for it.

"Does that mean you need more club experience? I don't know."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
