OXFORD United have appointed Dan Harris as their new head of academy.

The 38-year-old joins the Sky Bet League One club after a recent spell as assistant head coach of South Korean side Seoul E-Land FC.

Harris, who has 18 years of experience, has also worked with England's U19 and 20 sides, as well as Celtic, Birmingham City, West Bromwich Albion, Coventry City, and Peterborough United.

He will work alongside the academy's head of coaching Les Taylor, and coaches Leon Blackmore Such and Chris Hackett.

Harris said: “I am thrilled to be given this opportunity.

"Oxford has a fantastic tradition for bringing through the best local players and giving them a chance in the first team.

"The staff and infrastructure are already well established and I want to come in, build from those solid foundations and make sure that this club continues to thrive and enjoy success at the academy for many years to come.”

United chairman Darryl Eales said: “We had a number of very strong candidates for the role.

"But Dan is an outstanding individual with a very strong CV and a lot of really exciting ideas to help us continue to grow and improve the academy.

“He will work alongside Les Taylor and the academy coaches and following the recent appointment of Chris Hackett as PDP coach, we believe this is a very exciting time for everyone involved in the youth development side of the club.”
