De Boer has been associated with the Oranje job since Dick Advocaat announced his decision to step down last month, but previously stated he would rather remain as a club coach. However, speaking on Ziggo Sport show Peptalk, De Boer said he would consider taking over the national team if asked.

He said, “I do not know if I would say yes or no, but I would like to think about it.

“I am a doer. I would like to be on the field, preferably every day to develop a team, as a national team coach, of course, that can be done much less, and I have to put it side by side.”

De Boer was sacked by Crystal Palace earlier this season and has been out of work since. Ronald Koeman is still the favourite to be named as Dick Advocaat’s successor.
