Steve Wigley is set to be assistant to Stuart Pearce at Nottingham Forest after leaving his role as manager of the Under-18s at Fulham, reports BBC Radio Nottingham

Fulham’s academy director Huw Jennings said of Wigley’s departure:

“It’s very disappointing that Steve has left. He was a great asset to Fulham,” said academy director Huw Jennings.

“But he has received an offer in football that he felt compelled to accept and impossible for us to persuade him otherwise.

“We wish Steve all the very best and thank him for his contribution during his time here.”

Wigley played 82 times for Forest between 1981 and 1985 before spells with Sheffield United, Birmingham City, Portsmouth and Exeter City.

He has a two-year spell as manager of Aldershot  but returned to the City Ground as assistant academy director under Paul Hart’s tenure, before being moved up to become first-team coach.
