The KNVB are taking their time in appointing a successor to Dick Advocaat, who left the role in November after the failure to reach this summer’s World Cup.

De Telegraaf state that there are three serious candidates being considered. Ronald Koeman, Peter Bosz and Frank de Boer, who are all currently out of work.

Koeman and Bosz are both still being paid by Everton and Borussia Dortmund after being sacked earlier this season and those payments would stop should either take on the role of Oranje boss. However, this is something both would be willing to do despite their pay being less should they accept the Netherlands job.

Koeman remains the favourite for the position.

The KNVB also need to appoint a new director with Fred Rutten, who was the leading candidate, taking on a role in Israel. Maz Huiberts, Martin van Geel and Marcel Brands are also unlikely to take on the role.
