Port Vale coach Rob Page will remain at the club after Sheffield United decided to appoint David Weir as their new manager.
Page, who has impressed with his coaching work at Vale Park, was amongst the front-runners for the role at Bramall Lane.
But on Monday the Sheffield club have announced that former Everton coach Weir is their new manager.
While this news will be a boost to the Valiants, it remains to be seen how long the club can hold onto Page who reportedly come close to being appointed at Wimbledon the previous season.
