Spurs Women set to smash record to sign England

Tottenham Women are set to smash the British transfer record to sign Chelsea striker Beth England.
Sportsmail understands the 28-year-old forward has agreed to join Spurs in a move worth £250,000.
England said goodbye to her Chelsea team-mates on Friday after the club had beaten Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League the night before.
Tottenham have struggled for goals this season but hope England will hit the ground running when the league re-starts in January.
Spurs, who are eighth in the WSL table, have managed just 11 goals in nine league games this season, with eight of those coming in the same match.
England has 11 goals in 21 games for the Lionesses and was part of the Euro-winning squad this summer, though she did not play a minute in the tournament.
England has recently struggled for playing time at Chelsea and has started just two league games all season.
The striker was left out of Sarina Wiegman’s last two England squads in October and November. Her last goals for the Lionesses came in September’s World Cup qualifier against Luxembourg.
It is understood England’s motivation to be picked for next summer’s World Cup squad played a big part in her decision to leave Chelsea.
England has been at Chelsea since 2016 after joining the club from Doncaster Rovers. She scored 10 goals in 16 matches during a loan spell with Liverpool in the 2017-2018 season before returning to the Blues.
The forward was Chelsea’s top scorer in the following campaign with 22 goals in all competitions before repeating that feat in the 2019-2020 season, which was curtailed due to Covid-19.
England, who also scored the winning goal in the Continental League Cup final that year, was named the WSL player of the season as the Blues were awarded the title on points per game.
