Donald Trump will meet former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to discuss the position of Secretary of State, according to US media.
NBC News said the meeting would take place this weekend, with a source telling the network it was to discuss the position.
Secretary of State is one of the most important jobs in the administration.
Romney, who ran for president in 2012, delivered a scathing verbal attack on the now president-elect earlier this year.
Mr Trump endorsed Mr Romney during his 2012 campaign.
The former Massachusetts governor sent his "best wishes" to Mr Trump after his election victory earlier this month.
Since his surprise victory, other names linked to the Secretary of State role include lawyer and diplomat John Bolton, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani and South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.
In a series of tweets Mr Trump said he was "the only one who knows who the finalists are," as critics suggested he is struggling to contain division among his top aides.
