Suggesting they are waiting to see how England perform with Under-21 coach Stuart Pearce in the hot seat.
Fabio Capello's resignation earlier this month, following the decision to strip the captaincy from John Terry, has left the FA looking for a manager to lead England into Euro 2012 and beyond.
Pearce is in caretaker charge for Wednesday's friendly against the Netherlands and has expressed his interest in taking the team to the European Championship.
Harry Redknapp is the overwhelming favourite to succeed Capello, but the Tottenham boss confirmed last week that he has yet to speak to anyone regarding the position.
FA chairman David Bernstein: "It is important to stress that, while there have been numerous conversations internally, the board have mandated us to report back to them with a recommendation.
"We haven't, let's be clear, spoken to any external bodies about this, as far as any club or any individual, and no approaches or conversations have been made."
