Former Leeds United head coach Neil Redfearn has resigned from his role with the club's academy.
The 49-year-old was replaced as the Championship side's boss by Uwe Rosler in May.
He was subsequently offered the chance to return to his previous role in charge of the club's academy but in a statement today he announced that he has not taken up the option.
Redfearn guided the Whites to safety last season after taking over the reins on a permanent basis in November.
Leeds United have signed Cardiff City midfielder Tom Adeyemi on a season-long loan deal.

Leeds United have signed Chris Wood from Leicester City on a four-year deal.
Wood, 23, arrives at Elland Road for an undisclosed fee.
The New Zealand international becomes United’s fourth summer signing following the additions of Charlie Horton, Lee Erwin and Sol Bamba earlier this month.
Wood, who joined Leicester from West Brom in 2013, scored 20 times during his 62 appearances in all competitions for the Foxes.
He’s physical, strong and experienced in this league. He has potential to develop and has his best years in front of him. It’s exciting. He already has a proven goalscoring record and I think there are many goals to come. We think that he is the right player.
Sol Bamba has signed a two-year deal with Leeds United after an undisclosed fee was agreed with Italian side Palermo.
Bamba spent the second half of last season on loan at Elland Road and is Leeds' third summer signing following the arrivals of goalkeeper Charlie Horton from Cardiff City and striker Lee Erwin from Motherwell.
The Ivory Coast international made 19 appearances while on loan in 2014/15 and also captained the side on several occasions.
Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino has been ordered to pay €40,000 (£28,500) by an Italian court this morning, according to reports.
The charge relates to tax owed on an imported Land Rover.
According to Sardinian newspaper Unione Sarda, Cellino was acquitted of customs offences because the estimates of the Range Rover’s value fall below the threshold of criminal liability.
Leeds United owner, Massimo Cellino, is due in court in Italy today over allegations he evaded tax owed on an imported Land Rover.
If found guilty he could be banned from owning Leeds by the Football League for a second time.
