    Manchester United are set to name Marc Skinner as their new manager following his departure from Orlando Pride.

    The former Birmingham City boss, 38, stepped down from the American club with "immediate effect" on Friday.

    A club statementexternal-link said he is pursuing "a coaching opportunity outside of the National Women's Soccer League".

    Earlier this week United agreed personal terms with Skinner for him to replace Casey Stoney, who resigned at the end of last season.

    The search for Stoney's replacement has been extensive and has lasted more than two months.
