Burnley youth chief Michael Duff to take Cheltenham manager's job

Burnley youth chief Michael Duff has been offered the manager's job at Cheltenham.

Duff has been offered the Cheltenham Town manager's job, reports Sky Sports.

The former Clarets defender could be at Saturday's League Two match against Northampton Town, although caretaker boss Russell Milton will remain in charge for that game, reports Gloucestershire Live.

Duff, who succeeds Gary Johnson in the hotseat, will be joining from Premier League club Burnley, where he has been working as Under-23s coach and also part of first team manager Sean Dyche's backroom staff.

He is arguably Cheltenham Town's greatest ever youth product and was the first player to win full international honours while on the books of the Robins, making his debut for Northern Ireland against Cyprus in February 2002 and going on to earn a total of 24 caps.
