Mo Farah will attempt to add two more major titles to his collection by competing in the 5,000 and 10,000 metres at the Commonwealth Games next month, according to reports.

If he triumphs in both events in Glasgow, Farah will become the first athlete to win European, Commonwealth, world and Olympic 5,000 and 10,000m titles.

Farah's last outing came at the London Marathon in April when he finished eighth on his debut in the event.

The double Olympic and world champion begins his track season on Sunday when he runs the 5,000m at the Portland Track Festival in America.

Balancing both competitions in Glasgow next month will be an easier task than at the 2012 Olympics given neither races involve heats.

The 5,000m final is scheduled for July 27 while the 10,000m final takes place five days later on August 1.

Farah finished ninth in the 5,000m at the 2006 Games in Melbourne and withdrew from the 2010 Games in Delhi due to fatigue.
