England boss Fabio Capello has ordered his players to put their club futures on hold during the World Cup.

A host of players included in Capello's provisional 30-man squad, namely David James, Joe Cole, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Matthew Upson and Emile Heskey, are expected to change clubs this summer, but Capello, renowned for his strict rules within the England camp, has put an all-out ban on any talks taking place before or during the World Cup 2010.

"I hope the players do not change their team or have negotiations," he told The Sun. "It disturbs the players all the time."
