Scott Parker has gone back to former club Tottenham after hanging up his boots.
The 36-year-old retired from football earlier this week and was expected to make the move into coaching.
Parker was in talks with Fulham about taking up a coaching position at Craven Cottage following the end of his playing career, but he has turned down that opportunity, choosing instead to return to Spurs.
The former Charlton Ahletic, Chelsea, West Ham and Newcastle United man has agreed to become Tottenham's new U18s manager, as well as becoming an ambassador for the club.
Parker embarked on an FA UEFA Pro Licence course, which is mandatory to manage in the Premier League, and was in the same class as Mark Warburton, Jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink, Brad Friedel and Phil Neville, graduating in June 2016.
