The Football Association has issued a statement insisting it will not sell naming rights to Wembley Stadium.

Reports suggested Wembley was considering signing a deal with phone company EE that would see the national stadium renamed 'Wembley Stadium in association with EE'.

However, on Friday evening the FA rejected the speculation, insisting that a deal is not in the offing.

An FA spokesman said: "There are no naming rights available for Wembley Stadium and there is nothing to report about any rights deals being signed with any company at present."
