Burton leaves Owls for Arsenal job

Wednesday assistant manager Terry Burton has left the club to join the coaching staff at Premier League Arsenal.

Burton, who arrived at Hillsborough to help guide the Owls to promotion to the Championship alongside Dave Jones, becomes the Gunners' new reserves and head development coach.

He told the official Arsenal website: "I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dave Jones and everyone at Sheffield Wednesday for their support and understanding.

'Wednesday is a great club and I leave behind many great friends. I wish everyone at Sheffield Wednesday the best of luck for next season."

Arsène Wenger said: "We are delighted that Terry Burton is joining Arsenal. I have known Terry for many years and he is someone who is hugely respected and highly regarded in the game.

'Terry brings with him a wealth of coaching experience and he will be a great asset for us, working with our reserves and youth development players."

Owls boss Dave Jones has started his search for a new assistant ahead of the new season.
