Former Everton player Phil Neville has stepped down from his role as manager of England's Women and is expected to become manager of David Beckham's MLS side Inter Miami.

Neville became manager of the Women’s team in January 2018 but he originally announced last April that he would move away from the position this summer. The former Manchester United and Everton defender has been approached by MLS side Inter Miami and is now expected to be unveiled as their new manager.

“It has been an honour to manage England and I have enjoyed three of the best years of my career with The FA and the Lionesses,” added Neville.

“The players who wear the England shirt are some of the most talented and dedicated athletes I have ever had the privilege to work with. They have challenged me and improved me as a coach, and I am very grateful to them for the fantastic memories we have shared.

“I’d like to thank The FA for the tremendous backing they have given me, in particular Sue Campbell and my talented support staff whose energy, commitment and enthusiasm has been crucial to helping us make the progress we have. I wish England Women every success in the future and look forward to following their journey in the years to come.”
