The 56-year-old, who previously worked alongside manager Sean O'Driscoll at Bournemouth and Doncaster, joined City in January.

But O'Kelly's family is still based in the Midlands, and he has chosen to step down for personal reasons ahead of the club's return to League One next season.

He told the club's official website: "The club is in a position now where, if the right decisions are made, it can only go one way.

"They are in good hands and I couldn't speak highly enough of the people I've worked with.

"I wish the club all the best in the future and am sure they will be successful."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
