Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp has revealed he has still not been approached over the vacant England manager's position.
Redknapp is the overwhelming favourite to succeed Fabio Capello as England manager in time for Euro 2012.
But over two weeks have passed since Capello resigned following a disagreement with the Football Association over their decision to strip John Terry of the captaincy.
The FA appears keen to wait until after next week's friendly against Holland before making a move for their man - whoever that may be.
"No, I haven't been approached," confirmed Redknapp on Friday.
The Spurs manager has already maintained he will not leave his club before the end of the season, while admitting it would be difficult for him to turn down the chance to manage his country.
And Redknapp has given his backing to England Under 21 and Olympic team manager Stuart Pearce, who will lead the team against Holland at Wembley on Wednesday.
"I am sure he will do well," added Redknapp.
"I signed him as a player for West Ham and he was fantastic. I tried to sign him two years before but the chairman at West Ham at the time said 'he's too old Harry, he's finished'.
"Then he went to Newcastle, didn't do so great, but I took him to West Ham two years later and he was absolutely fantastic. He was top class."
Pearce has yet to name a captain for the Holland game but Redknapp feels the caretaker boss could do worse than look to Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker.
"It's up to Stuart who he picks but Scotty would be a good captain," said Redknapp, who signed Parker from West Ham last summer.
"There are a lot of good candidates there but Scott has captained the team here a couple of times this year and he is a fantastic boy, a great professional.
"You couldn't get a better boy. He is a top-class person and a top-class player."
Parker is one of the few experienced players named by Pearce in a youthful squad for the game against the 2010 World Cup finalists, with the likes of Frank Lampard and Rio Ferdinand being omitted.
Redknapp is a huge fan of both players but understands the reasoning behind Pearce's decision.
He added: "Stuart has brought a few young faces in and he wants to give them a chance to show what they can do.
"There was no Rio, no Frank, and quite a few senior ones he knows about were left out as well. He has obviously gone for a team where he wants to look at a few players."
