The Ukraine football federation is in talks with former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson after a failed approach to Harry Redknapp.

An FFU spokeswoman confirmed 64-year-old Eriksson is considering an offer to take over the Ukraine national team, a role which has been vacant since previous manager Oleg Blokhin resigned in September.

“An offer has been made, negotiations are under way,” the spokeswoman said.

Eriksson, whose previous managerial appointments include IFK Gothenburg, Benfica, Lazio and Manchester City, has served as technical director of Thai club BEC Tero Sasana since September.

Former West Ham, Portsmouth and Tottenham manager Redknapp had been sought for the position but chose to accept an offer from Queens Park Rangers.

Blokhin stood down in September and accepted the head coaching role at Dynamo Kiev after failing to guide Ukraine out of the group stages of Euro 2012, which the nation co-hosted.
