Bournemouth has lost analyst Jordan Smith to League Two side Stockport County.
The Hatters were chasing a new staff member, as they lost the head of performance analysis Joppe Meulensteen. With Meulensteen joining Middlesbrough, Smith will take over his role for Stockport.
Stockport director of football Simon Wilson commented: “We are all sad to see Joppe go – he’s been brilliant. But we wish him the best in his next chapter with Middlesbrough.
“Replacing him I’m delighted to welcome Jordan Smith to the club, who joins from Bournemouth.
“Jordan has been a part of two really progressive coaching staff units at Bournemouth and Swansea and now takes his first ‘head of’ role to lead our provision across the club, but primarily supporting Dave (Challinor, manager) and first team.
“We will ensure he will settle quickly into our group and allow him to build on the work we have done to date.”
