JOHN Pemberton, Sheffield United’s director of academy coaching, is leaving Bramall Lane, writes James Shield.

Pemberton , who also represented the South Yorkshire club as a player, is believed to have accepted an offer to join Nottingham Forest in an unspecified capacity.

The Star understands that Pemberton, who led United’s under-18’s to the final of the FA Youth Cup last year tendered his resignation Friday evening.

Officials, including academy chief John Stephenson, are expected to discuss the key appointment early next week.

Pemberton worked at Forest before returning to Bramall Lane and enjoyed a brief spell in charge of the Midlands outfit.
