​Sampson on verge of leaving as England women's manager

Mark Sampson is set to leave as England women's manager amid an ongoing row over discrimination allegations, reports BBC Sport.

It comes after his side beat Russia 6-0 in a World Cup qualifier on Tuesday.

The 34-year-old took over in 2013 and led England to successive semi-finals at major tournaments.

He was accused of discrimination by Chelsea forward Eniola Aluko but has been cleared of wrongdoing by two investigations and vehemently denies the allegations.

The FA is expected to confirm his departure at a press conference on Wednesday afternoon.
