Aston Villa's head of academy recruitment Tom Brady has left the club.
BirminghamLive reports Brady had held his post after joining in December 2016, helping to bring in talents such as American whizz-kid Indiana Vassilev.
The Uefa A-licensed coach was the man behind recruiting talented goalkeeper Viljani Sinisalo from Finland, Tyreik Wright from Lakewood in Ireland, giant French striker Dimitri Sea from AC Boulogne-Billancourt and the highly sought-after Jaden Philogene-Bidace from London's Pro:Direct Academy.
Brady also boasts the recruitment of teenage Chelsea centre-back Paul Appiah and goalkeepers Jamie Searle from New Zealand and Hungarian, Akos Onodi.
Villa, meanwhile, look set to replace Brady with West Bromwich Albion's former head of academy recruitment, Steve Hopcroft.
