Before leaving for England on Saturday to talk to at least one Premier League soccer team, free agent Cobi Jones said he preferred not to identify the club in question. "All I'm going to say is that it's a top-10 team," Jones said. "I'd like to leave it to the team to announce something if it wants to." On Monday, it turned out that Jones is negotiating with Ipswich Town, a 123-year-old club that ranks sixth in England's top flight.

Slightly less than two months after going on strike, the U.S. women's national soccer team achieved virtually all of its aims Tuesday when U.S. Soccer announced it had reached a "historic" contract agreement with the national team. Under terms of the five-year deal, the veterans will earn a guaranteed minimum of $60,000 a year--and probably much more--and the younger, less-experienced players are guaranteed an annual minimum of $42,000.

Tonight, the American team plays Peru in Lima in what was intended to be the last warmup game before its first France '98 qualifying game, against Guatemala at RFK Stadium in Washington on Nov. 3. But no starting player boarded the plane in Miami when the team left for Peru on Monday.

None of the 16 players offered contracts for this year by the U.S. Soccer Federation has signed, the national team's coach, Bob Gansler, said Monday. But only one player, reserve goalkeeper David Vanole of Manhattan Beach, chose not to attend the two-week training camp in La Jolla because of the contract dispute with the federation. "Some of us were advised by agents or attorneys to do the same thing, not show up," said defender Paul Caligiuri of Santa Monica. "But we're here.
