It is now understood that Westwood would prefer to wait until Rome 2022 to take up any leadership opportunities that may lay in wait.
Francesco Molinari, who is reunited with his Ryder Cup team-mates Tommy Fleetwood, Thorbjorn Olesen and tournament host Justin Rose this week, is also a Harrington advocate.
Bjorn, who will play alongside Harrington and Westwood in the first two rounds of this week's British Masters at Walton Heath, has suggested Harrington is now the front-runner for 2020.
Lee Westwood had previously expressed a desire to captain Europe in 2020, but said on Wednesday that he would prefer to do the job in Rome in 2022 and described Harrington as the "better candidate" to lead the team at Whistling Straits.
The 45-year-old also told Sky Sports News that he felt three-time major victor Harrington was the "perfect candidate" and better equipped to lead Europe's attempt to retain the trophy won in convincing style at Le Golf National, where both he and Harrington were vice-captains.

"We will no doubt be making that decision just prior to Christmas". If he doesn't do it this time then I'm not sure - you've got to start fitting guys in, ' Rose said.

'I'd love to win more majors, as a kid that's what I dreamed.
Following Thomas Bjorn's successful captaincy in Europe, there was speculation about who the next man up would be on the Euro side.
"He has a great relationship with the players on the PGA Tour for all the years he's played there".
Writing on Twitter, Johnson was quick to praise Koepka, saying: "Congratulations.Great season bro.POY well deserved".
