Greg Dyke is expected to announce the former England manager Glenn Hoddle as a key member of his commission to improve the fortunes of the national side.
Fourteen years after Hoddle was sacked in the wake of controversial comments about reincarnation, he is poised to become a member of the panel looking at ways to improve the development of homegrown talent.
The former Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur manager, 55, was believed to be among the players and managers consulted by Dyke when he became the FA chairman in June.
Last month Dyke warned of an "alarming" lack of homegrown talent in the Premier League and warned that England could slip off the world stage altogether if the situation was not addressed. Dyke, who cited figures showing that the proportion of players who qualified to play for England in the Premier League had slumped to 32%, is expected to reveal the full make-up of his commission in a speech at the Leaders in Football conference in London on Wednesday.
Hoddle will be joined by representatives from the Professional Footballers Association, the League Managers Association and the Football League but the Premier League, despite promising to co-operate, will not have a formal presence on the commission.
Hoddle, whose stock has risen in his time away from the game here amid praise from those involved in his England set up, has been concentrating on an academy for young players in Spain since resigning as the Wolves manager in 2006.
Earlier this year he presented a radio programme looking into some of the structural solutions that might result in more English players being developed. He has backed new rules to increase the proportion of homegrown players in the top flight. "We've got foreign owners, who bring in foreign managers, who bring in foreign players above English players and it's a downward spiral. It really is a concern. The England manager's job is a hard job as it is and it's going to get harder and harder unless we re-address it with a rule change."
