Ther former England manager Sven Goran Eriksson is reported to be in talks with England's oldest Football League club Notts County about becoming director of football.

BBC Radio Nottingham sayss the Swede, who spent five years in charge of England's national team and led them to the quarter-final of the 2006 World Cup, had been approached by the club's new Middle East owners.

County, one of the founder members of the Football League but outside the top flight since 1992, are currently in League Two (fourth division). They were bought last week by Munto Finance.
