His promotion to frontrunner follows the decision by Peter Littlewood, a senior executive at confectionery giant Mars, to pull out of the running – Littlewood had been seen as the man most likely to succeed Adam Crozier, who resigned towards the end of last year.

A former midfielder with Tranmere Rovers during the 1970s and 1980s, Palios later turned to a career in accounting, becoming a business regeneration specialist at PricewaterhouseCoopers, following time spent at Ernst & Young.

Palios could be up against the FA’s current communications and marketing director, Paul Barber.
