Freddie Flintoff has reportedly splashed out millions of pounds to buy the six-bedroom former home of football manager Phil Neville.

The Top Gear and former cricket ace, 43, is said to have snapped up the stunning abode in Hale, Cheshire weeks after Phil, 44, put the property up for sale so he could move to the US to coach David Beckham's Inter Miami.

And it seems that Freddie and his family will be living the life if luxury as the stunning home features a cinema and swimming pool, as well as a steel-lined panic room.

The sprawling property was on the market for a cool £5.25million, with The Sun reporting that the deal was sealed in a 'matter of weeks', with it being said the cricketer paid slightly less than the asking price.

A source told the publication: 'Freddie has done really well with his TV work and wanted a stunning new home for his family.

'He saw Phil’s property come on the market and thought it was perfect for his wife Rachael and their four children.They have moved in and are enjoying making it their own.'
