Gareth Southgate – who was named the new England Under 21 coach earlier this week – is to give up his analyst duties with ITV Sport, according to Charles Sale at the Daily Mail.
Southgate first joined ITV as a co-commentator during the 2006 World Cup, covering group games alongside Clive Tyldesley.
His appointment as Middlesbrough manager two days before the start of the tournament meant that he left Germany before the knockout phase commenced.
He resumed his role as pundit and co-commentator after he finished his tenure at Middlesbrough in 2010 commentating on FA Cup and UEFA Champions League matches for ITV as well as acting as a pundit on England games.
The 42-year-old signed a three-year contract with The FA to coach the Under-21 side and will begin work immediately ahead of the team’s September qualifiers.
