The BBC and BT Sport reportedly win the rights to broadcast FA Cup games next season, after two years of the competition being screened on ITV and ESPN.

The FA Cup will return to the BBC next season after a two-year absence from the broadcaster, according to a report.

The corporation lost the rights to the world's oldest football competition two years ago to ITV and ESPN.

However, a new deal has been struck with the FA and new chairman Greg Dyke, to allow the famous cup tournament to return to the BBC along with fellow broadcaster BT Sport, reports The Mirror.

ITV still hold the rights to show England internationals, including the rest of the Three Lions' World Cup qualifying campaign.
