Lars Lagerback has departed his role as Sweden coach while Norway are also onthe look-out for a full-time coach.
Hodgson said today: 'It's very nice to be mentioned. I've made it clear to the people who have contacted me that I have a contract so it's a non-starter and there is no point in them considering me.'
