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

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

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has agreed a new contract with the LaLiga champions.

The 29-year-old has put pen to paper on an extended deal to keep him at the Bernabeu until June 2021.

Benzema, who had two years remaining on his existing terms, becomes the latest player to prolong his stay with Los Blancos after Isco, Marcelo and Dani Carvajal did so in the past week.

A statement on the club's website read: "Real Madrid C. F. and Karim Benzema have agreed an extension to the player's contract, binding him to the club until 30 June 2021."

Benzema has long been the subject of transfer stories linking him to Arsenal, with a story in the Spanish press this week claiming that Madrid were considering selling the France international to the Gunners.

Benzema joined Madrid from Lyon in 2009 and has won 14 major trophies with the club, including two LaLiga titles, three Champions Leagues and two Copa del Rey crowns.

Cavani responds to rumours of a rift with Neymar

Edinson Cavani insists he has "no problem" with Neymar after the pair's on-field clash in Sunday's win over Lyon as speculation builds about the pair's relationship.

The pair appeared to disagree over who would take PSG's penalty in the closing stages. Cavani prevailed but saw his effort saved, leaving PSG to rely on own goals from Marcelo and Jeremy Morel for their 2-0 victory.

Reports suggest they clashed again in the dressing room afterwards and had to be separated by captain Thiago Silva, and even that Neymar is lobbying for Cavani to be sold in January.

But Uruguay striker Cavani told Radio Universal in his homeland: "I don't know why these stories are created. The truth is that these are normal things; things that happen in football.

"I learned of the story talking with my brother, about people saying that 'Cavani won't let anyone take penalties' and that there's a problem with Neymar. The truth is that there's no problem.

"He [Neymar] has just arrived and like I said from the off, we are keen for him to adapt in the best way possible. I think that's been proven because you can see he is adapting quickly."
