[ad_1]

Dan Ashworth has stepped down as Brighton’s manager to take on a similar role at another Premier League club, following Newcastle’s interest.

In December, he was cleared by Newcastle Brighton to speak with Ashworth.

Newcastle’s new owners were eager to appoint the 50-year-old as their new sporting director.

Ashworth has now left his role with The Seagulls and is on a long garden leave period, after which he may take a new position elsewhere.

Former Everton and Rangers player and Scottish international David Weir has recently been promoted to assistant manager to become the club’s interim manager.
