Arsenal U23 coach Kevin Betsy is adding to his staff.

Jeorge Bird's Arsenal youth website reports Reading U23 coach Mehmet Ali will join Betsy's backroom team in January.

Ali has informed the Reading U23 squad that he will be departing on December 17th.

He will provide assistance to Betsy following the recent departures of Greg Lincoln and Ryan Garry, who both took up positions as part of the England youth setup.

Having previously been at Tottenham Hotspur as coach of the U16s, Ali initially joined Reading as their assistant manager at U23 level in 2019, where he worked alongside former Arsenal player Scott Marshall.

Ali then took charge of the team himself at the start of last season.
