Wales manager Ryan Giggs hopes to appoint Dutchman Albert Stuivenberg as part of his coaching team.

Giggs and Stuivenberg formed part of Louis van Gaal's coaching team at Manchester United from 2014 to 2016.

He is currently out of work after being sacked before Christmas as manager of Belgian First Division club Genk.

Stuivenberg also had spells as youth coach at Feyenoord and Al Jazira Club, and as manager of the Netherlands under-17 and under-21 teams.

Giggs has already confirmed Tony Roberts will carry on as goalkeeper coach, whilst it remains unclear whether or not Chris Coleman's assistant Osian Roberts will continue in his role.

However, Dr Ryland Morgans has confirmed he has left the role of head of performance following reports new manager Ryan Giggs wants Manchester United head of athletic development Tony Strudwick in it.

Morgans was part of former boss Chris Coleman's backroom team at Euro 2016.

On social media Morgan said his eight years in the role had been "an honour and privilege" to work with Wales' "best players".
