England women's manager Mark Sampson is set to leave his position amid ongoing allegations of discrimination.

The 34-year-old, who led England to a 6-0 win over Russia on Tuesday night, has been the subject of allegations of racism, harassment and bullying.

It is unclear whether Sampson's departure is connected to those allegations.

The Football Association is expected to confirm his departure on Wednesday afternoon.
