England Women are keen to sit down with the FA hierarchy to discuss their ongoing dispute over pay and bonuses before the squad meets up for the Nations League matches in a week's time.

The rift dominated the build up to the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. On the eve of the team flying out for the tournament a row broke out, with the players "disappointed" with the bonuses they were due to be paid by the FA as they progressed through the competition.

However, in a statement the players announced they were putting aside their differences for the duration of the tournament.

Sky Sports News has been told the frustration within the squad remains as they prepare to meet up again, with the two sides no closer to a resolution.

There is no suggestion the players will go on strike, or they will look to reduce their media and commercial duties while on FA duty.

However, those more extreme actions have been discussed in the recent past.
