Gary Lineker is all set to host a football show on American TV next season.

The 52-year-old will be the face of NBC's Premier League coverage and will also work as a pundit for some events, the Mirror reported.

Although it is not yet known what the former England star, who also presented the 2012 Olympic Games, will be paid for his new role, he will still present the Beeb's Saturday highlights show.

The deal came after he took a salary cut from his 2 million-pound BBC contract earlier this year to a rumoured 1.5million pounds.

Lineker also presents Champions League matches for Arabic broadcaster Al Jazeera Sports from a London-based studio. (ANI)
