Di Matteo has managed to impress technical director Michael Emenalo with his team selections, attention to detail and the way he has got the squad together.

The pair has also discussed which young players they might bring through, The Daily Express reports.

There have also been talk over plans for a summer tour to America, and Di Matteo has advised on schedules, training bases and told players which dates to keep free.
