Former Villa, Everton and Stoke defender joins Ipswich backroom staff

Former England international Mike Pejic has joined Roy Keane's backroom staff at Ipswich. The ex-Stoke, Everton and Aston Villa defender has agreed to take on an Academy job as head of youth coaching and coach education.

The move sees Pejic replace Chris Kiwomya, who will now switch back to a reserves role in place of Steve Foley, who left the club in May.

"Chris Kiwomya is moving over to the reserves and Mike is coming in to work with the academy boys and we are delighted to have him at the club." Tractor Boys boss Keane told the club's official website.

Pejic, who was capped by England four times during his playing career, has also worked in Kuwait, Zimbabwe and Malaysia and has held various coaching positions for the Football Association.
