FA confirm Neville in talks with Inter Miami

The English FA have confirmed Inter Miami have made an approach to speak with womens coach Phil Neville.

The former Everton and Manchester United star is being lined up to replace Diego Alonso at Inter Miami.

The FA's director of women's football Sue Campbell said, "We did make a decision that Phil [Neville] would lead Team GB in November and we were moving towards an announcement when he started to have these discussions [with Inter Miami].

“Until those discussions are concluded, I can't really say any more. If Phil remains, he will be Team GB coach. If he goes, we obviously have something to think about and work through. That is where we are.

“It is his long-term future and it is up to him to make his decision. I'm certainly not privy to any detailed conversations he is having with Inter Miami but I know he is having conversations.

“We have some time on our hands but we all want to know and particularly the players, who are our priority. Once we know the decision about Phil, we will move quickly to find the right solution."
