England Women manager Phil Neville is set to leave his role five months before his contract expires.

The former Manchester United and Everton midfielder has been linked with the vacant managerial position with MLS side Inter Miami, co-owned by David Beckham.

Neville has been England Women boss since January 2018 and was expected to lead the Great Britain Women’s side at the Olympics in the summer.

However, he will now link-up with former team-mate Beckham in MLS.

Neville led England Women to the World Cup semi-finals in 2019.

According to the Times, the FA are now ready to announce his departure within the next 24 hours.

Sarina Wiegman has already been announced as Neville’s replacement with England but will only take over after coaching the Netherlands at this summer’s Olympic Games.

As a result, a new manager will be needed for the England Women’s fixtures set to take place before the summer as well as the Olympics.
