Players' union chief Gordon Taylor has branded the Football Association's £18,000-a-year contract offer to England's top women players as "embarrassing".

On the advice of the Professional Footballers' Association, Hope Powell's squad have opted not to sign their central contracts as Taylor looks to sort out a wrangle over how much time players are able to devote to second jobs in order to supplement their incomes.

"They (The FA) are offering to move these central contracts up from £16,000, which has been the figure since 2009, to £18,000," Taylor said. "Come on. That figure is embarrassing. Top Premier League players are earning more in a day."
