Interim England manager Hege Riise will take charge of Team GB at this summer’s Tokyo Olympics.
BBC Sport understands the Norwegian’s appointment will be confirmed later this week.
Riise is leading the England side on a temporary basis before Netherlands boss Sarina Wiegman takes over permanently in September.
The Lionesses thrashed Northern Ireland 6-0 at St George’s Park in her first game in charge last month.
Riise, 51, won Olympic gold as a player with Norway in 2000 and was also assistant coach to the USA team which won gold in London 2012.
