Chris Coleman has admitted that tonight's (November 14) international friendly against Panama could be his last as Wales manager.

After six years in the job Coleman's current contract with the FAW expires at the end of November and according to the BBC, the 47 year old will only sign a new deal if head of performance Ryland Morgans and psychologist Ian Mitchell are also handed full-time positions.

"They [FAW] know the situation," he told Wales Online. "They know my stance and how I see things, how I want to work and who I want to work with.

"But they may not see it that way, and that's okay. There will be no bad feeling. The experiences we have and where we have taken it that will never be spoiled. If it goes that way, that's the way it goes. That's football. Everything has to come to an end."

If Coleman does indeed leave his position with the Welsh national team - with his crowning glory being taking the team to their first international tournament since 1958 at Euro 2016 and an eventual semi-final finish - could he return to the Premier League?

The Welshman has not managed in the top tier of English football since being sacked by Fulham back in 2007, later having stints with Real Sociedad in Spain, Coventry City and Greek side AEL.

The only current vacant position in the division is Everton, who are yet to appoint a permanent successor to Ronald Koeman following the dismissal of the Dutchman on October 24.

David Unsworth has since been in charge on a caretaker basis but the Independent reports three defeats and one narrow victory during his four games at the helm means the Toffees hierarchy want to look elsewhere.

Coleman has been away from club football for some time and lacks a huge amount of experience in the English top flight, but surely his impressive run with Wales should count for something?
