According to the Metro who cites German publication Bild, Arsenal academy chief Andries Jonker has reportedly quit the club and has agreed on a deal with Wolfsburg.
Jonker is in his third season at the Emirates where he arrived to replace Liam Brady in 2014. Before then he had been the assistant manager at Wolfsburg, having previously been an assistant to Louis van Gaal with Barcelona, Bayern Munich and the Dutch national team.
The 54-year-old will return back to German after Wolfsburg gave Valerien Ismael the boot yesterday following the home defeat against Werder Bremen.
Sporting director Olaf Rebbe said: “After weighing up all the facts and circumstances, we agreed that the separation is the right way to get the team back on the track.
“In the decision-making process, we were not guided primarily by the most recent result against Bremen, but rather also included the impressions and results from the last weeks and months.”
They have confirmed their new head coach will be presented to the public today.
