Leicester City have appointed renowned academy recruitment specialist Steve Travis as Head of Emerging Talent.
Travis was Head of Academy Recruitment at Nottingham Forest before becoming head scout for the 12-16 age group at Stoke City in March 2017.
Nottingham Forest’s academy manager Gary Brazil told The Times in 2018: “Steve brought all our processes up to date, and made sure that we had a good structure of scouts, locally, regionally and nationally.”
The former Forest and Stoke man is joined at the club by Northampton Town’s chief academy analyst Jack Coles, who has been appointed Academy Recruitment Analyst.
Former Head of Academy Recruitment Bill Wall will now focus solely on scouting players and writing reports.
