De Telegraaf says Van Bronckhorst held talks with Brian Marwood, the chief director of Global Football within the City Group. Both parties agreed that the Dutch coach would initially work inside the total football organisation, so that he can become acquainted with the philosophy of the City Football Group.

In addition to Manchester, the organisation also manages Melbourne City FC and Club Atletico Torque. New York City FC, Girona, Yokohama F. Marinos, Sichuan Jiuniu FC and City Football Singapore are also part of the City Football Group.

The City Group wants former Feyenoord coach Van Bronckhorst to travel to the flagship clubs in the coming months. He will also spend a lot of time in Manchester.

Joyce took control of United's second string between 2008 and 2016, before going on to manager Wigan Athletic and Melbourne City's senior sides.

The 54-year-old returned to England earlier this year and beat over 150 applicants to the role of Salford's new youth chief.

I'm looking forward to the challenge, it's a different challenge and I'm relishing the opportunity to work here!

Obviously you're starting off afresh, it's a different challenge to start from near enough a blank piece of paper.

The club, the management and the owners have done fantastically well in the last few years to get to where they've got and they don't want to stop here.

Part of it is providing pathways for young players to come through, and local kids to get through to the first team."

The Englishman spent 12 years as a coach at the club and in 2008 was co manager of the reserves alongside current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Joyce parted ways with Melbourne City recently after two years with the Australian club.

United are without a U23 coach since Ricky Sbragia was sacked three weeks ago.

The 54-year-old has a strong relationship with Paul Pogba, who has been linked with an exit in recent weeks.

Vincent Kompany was the highest profile departure as Manchester City confirmed their list of released players ahead of next season.

The Belgium international already announced he would be leaving the club after last month's FA Cup final to take over as player-manager at Anderlecht.

Pep Guardiola was keen to keep the club captain on for another year but refused to guarantee him regular first-team football as City look to add to their central defensive options this summer.

In total, six out of contract players have been allowed to leave, including Luke Brattan, who has been on loan at Melbourne City for the last three seasons.

Academy prospects Aaron Nemane, Cameron Humphreys-Grant, Charlie Oliver and Tom Dele-Bashiru will also depart.

Villa paid Fulham 12m for the Scotsman's signature in 2016.

He went on to make 24 appearances in four seasons, which included loan spells at four different clubs.

McCormack still had 12 months remaining on his contract and was in line for a pay increase after Villa's promotion to the Premier League.

However, the two parties have reached a mutual agreement to terminate the contract.

Villa confirmed McCormack's departure with a statement on Monday, which read: "Aston Villa can confirm Ross McCormack is to leave the club after signing a variation agreement.

"The club would like to wish Ross well for the future."

39-year-old Cahill - who also played in USA, China and Australia - is currently with Indian Super League side Jamshedpur, but his contract expires at the end of the month.

Asked if he would continue playing when the deal runs out, the Socceroos legend told Optus Sport: "No, I'm an old man now in football years.

"I'd love to keep playing, you know, 39, had a great stint for six months in India.

"But I'm interested in TV, going to start my A Licence, and spending quality time with my family and chilling out for a bit.

"It was amazing to play in four big continents. I had a great career and I'm really thankful.

"I'm someone that massively respects the game and I'll take my time to learn more.

"Coaching is something that's definitely going to be on the horizon."

Harrison has taken the unorthodox decision to join the A-League club, which resides 16,000km from London.

The 21-year-old has made a gutsy decision and is hopeful he can follow the same footsteps as Kane, who perfected his craft on loan at the likes of Leicester City and Norwich before hitting the big time at Spurs.

"Harry's an example of hard work, going out on loan, doing well there and showing that hard work pays off," Harrison told Goal.

"He's a big inspiration for me, especially being a striker. Someone I really look up to and hopefully I can mirror that one day.

"I've trained with him a lot, played with him in a few pre-season games - he's just an amazing player, everything you want in a striker.

"Not only on the pitch but the way he carries himself off it as well. He's an unbelievable professional and someone all the lads at Spurs look up to."

The 21-year-old Spurs youth product is being sent down under to get more game time, where he will join Melbourne City on-loan.

Harrison has struggled to break into Mauricio Pochettino's first team, having only appeared once in a League Cup tie against Liverpool in October 2016.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports key to the Melbourne City deal is their coach Warren Joyce.

The former Manchester United academy coach remains highly regarded inside the English game and his presence convinced Spurs about the deal.

They will now link up once more under the tutelage of coach Juanma Lillo, according to Deportes Cuatro.

Villa is the Spanish national side's top scorer of all time with 59 goals and has worn the jersey of Sporting, Zaragoza, Valencia, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Melbourne City previously in his career.

Two days ago, he announced that he will not remain with New York City next season but didn't offer any hints as to where he may end up.

He captained New York City, playing 124 games with the side and scoring 80 goals.

An announcement should be made by the end of the year, with the club in question believed to be in Chengdu, says the Daily Mail.

City already own Australia's Melbourne City and Club Atletico Torque in Uruguay. They part-own New York City FC, La Liga's Girona and Yokohama F Marinos in Japan.

The Premier League champions have been criticised for moving players between clubs under the City Football Group umbrella.

Club sources stress, however, that City are focused on building their brand and "expanding the development of grassroots football" across the world.
