England yet to sign broadcast deal

England stall on TV deal


UEFA have still not finalised an agreement with the Football Association over selling the rights on a pan-European basis - and the European body plan to go to tender in two weeks.

The FA signed an initial mandate a year ago but UEFA general secretary Gianni Infantino revealed the latest stand-off at the footballex conference in Manchester - and said he was confident a deal could be finalised in the next couple of days.

Infantino said: "The sticking points are minor rights details, radio rights and so on, and it is a matter of sitting around the table and discussing that.

"We have reached agreements with 52 out of the 53 countries so there is no reason why we should not reach it with England, we still have a couple of days and there are just a couple of minor points.

"It will have a seismic effect on the football landscape across Europe."

All countries have signed a mandate agreeing a guaranteed minimum income from UEFA for the TV rights.
