Ryan Giggs has been interviewed for the Wales manager's job as the search for Chris Coleman's successor nears its conclusion.

Giggs remains the favourite to succeed Coleman and return to football 18 months after leaving his coaching role at Manchester United.

But Craig Bellamy and Coleman's former assistant Osian Roberts are also in contention for the position.

The Football Association of Wales hopes to announce its new manager in the next week, before the UEFA Nations League draw takes place in Switzerland on January 24.

Giggs is in pole position to claim his first permanent management role since Coleman stepped down in November to take over at Sunderland.

The 44-year-old has many admirers at the FAW but would not be a popular appointment with some Wales fans, as he was widely criticised for regularly pulling out of Wales squads and did not make an international friendly appearance until March 2000.
