Terry Venables, who stands down as England coach after Euro 96, could return to club management before the start of next season.

Venables decided to leave his current post as he felt he could not combine regular court appearances with the qualifying campaign for the 1998 World Cup. However, it is now believed that the time Venables will have to spend in court later this year may be only a matter of days, which would allow him more time to concentrate on football.

Venables is understood to have had several job offers and is being linked with a number of leading European sides, including Paris St-Germain, Parma and Porto, who will have a vacancy after Bobby Robson's imminent move to Barcelona.
