A report in the newspaper claimed that Allardyce had told the reporters it was possible to “get around” an FA rule, introduced in 2008, banning third parties from owning part of a player’s economic rights.

In a statement, the FA also confirmed that Gareth Southgate will take charge of the team for the next four matches against Malta, Slovenia, Scotland and Spain.
