Pearce offered new contract

Stuart Pearce has revealed he has been offered a new two-year contract as England Under-21 boss.

And Pearce admitted he would also jump at the chance to manage Great Britain's Olympic football team at next year's London Games.

Pearce's current contract with the Football Association expires after this summer's UEFA Under-21 Championships but he looks set to stay on until at least the following finals in 2013.

"My contract finishes in the summer,'' said the 48-year-old, who revealed he had held talks about his future with FA head of football development Sir Trevor Brooking. "I spoke with Trevor Brooking about a month ago. He's keen to extend it for another two years. I enjoy the job I do, so if it's workable, it might well happen.''

The FA had hoped to win the right to host the 2013 Under-21 Championship, which would have allowed them to disband the England team for a year while Pearce coached Team GB. With qualifying games now to be played next season, that could complicate matters.

Pearce said: "I've no idea about the Olympics. I might be throwing the hammer. If I was asked to take a team to the Olympics, I'd be delighted to accept.''
