England fans may need to splash out on two new kits just twelve months after the current design was released, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

Kit manufactures Nike are set to cash in on England's qualification for next summer's World Cup by releasing two new strips prior to the tournament in Brazil.

The current home kit, released in May of this year, drew comparisons to Germany shirts of yesteryear, but despite England fan's eagerness to wave goodbye to the shirt there will be understandable outrage as fans are expected to splash out on yet another new kit.

Nike's current red away shirt will also be replaced, meaning England would have worn four different kits in just over a year.

The US-based sports firm have tried to calm public outrage, a spokeswoman for Nike said: "These are unusual circumstances because of when we started the FA agreement and the need to recognise England’s 150 anniversary this year.

"After the World Cup a normal kit cycle will resume. The home shirt will stay the same for two years and the away one for 18 months."

The current designs are the first attempts from Nike, who took over the multi-million pound kit supply deal from Umbro last year having bought the company in 2007.
