Carla Ward is set to be announced as the new manager of Women’s Super League side Birmingham City Women.
Ward made a surprise exit from her previous club Sheffield United Women in July, whom she led to second in the Women’s Championship last season.
She spoke of wanting to pursue a new challenge, having first arrived at Sheffield United as assistant manager in 2017.
Despite missing out on promotion to the top tier, Ward led United to their best-ever finish – six points behind eventual champions Aston Villa.
Now the 36-year-old is set to be given the reins of WSL founding members Birmingham, who have been without a permanent manager since Marta Tejedor left in March.
She will be tasked with turning around the fortunes of a Birmingham side who finished second bottom in the top-flight last season.
