Manchester United have appointed David Harrison as their director of football operations.
Harrison joins from fellow Premier League side Everton, where he has spent the past 27 years of his career.
He will succeed Alan Dawson, who is departing United in July after 11 years, and will report directly to football director John Murtough.
“David is known as one of the most able and respected operators in football and we are delighted that he has chosen to join Manchester United,” Murtough said.
“He will bring deep experience and knowledge to this important role, and add further strength to the support structure we are building around our football teams, to give our players and staff the best chance of success.”
We can confirm Director of Football Operations, David Harrison, will leave at the end of this month to take up a new role at Manchester United.
Best of luck for the future, Dave, and thank you for your service over the past 27 years.

“I will always cherish my memories of 27 years at Everton and wish everyone at Goodison and Finch Farm all the best for the future.
“Now, my focus is on helping Manchester United create the best possible operating environment to support success on the pitch.”
