Huddersfield have announced the appointment of Olaf Rebbe as the club's new sporting director from June 1.

The 40-year-old, who held a similar position at Bundesliga side Wolfsburg until his departure in April, will "work closely with head coach David Wagner".

Rebbe effectively succeeds David Moss, who left his post as head of football by mutual consent in October after just five months with the Premier League club.

A statement on Huddersfield's website read: "As sporting director, Rebbe will work closely with head coach David Wagner and report to the board on the recruitment of players and the monitoring of football operations such as scouting, analysis, sports science and medicine."

Rebbe's first job in professional football came in 2004 with Werder Bremen, where he held various positions.

He has also worked on football operations for FIFA at the 2006 World Cup and for UEFA at the 2008 European Championship.

Rebbe became the Bundesliga's second youngest sporting director upon his appointment at Wolfsburg in 2016.

Moore appointed full-time West Brom boss

West Brom have confirmed the appointment of Darren Moore as the club's new head coach.

The 44-year-old former Albion defender has landed the job on an "improved and extended contract" having been given the role on a temporary basis following Alan Pardew's dismissal at the start of April.

Moore's impressive spell as caretaker boss saw him steer West Brom to three wins - including victories against Manchester United and Tottenham - and two draws in six Premier League matches, staving off relegation until the last week of the season and restoring some pride after a miserable campaign both on and off the pitch.
