Newport County has held talks with former Huddersfield technical director David Webb about her vacant executive position.
The League Two side are looking for a new manager after parting ways with James Rowberry and his assistant Carl Serrant after a poor start to the season, leaving them 18th after 13 games and just three points clear of the relegation zone.
And Webb, who has worked under the likes of Mauricio Pochettino and Graham Potter, is being considered by the Wales side with the support of an experienced manager as he has emerged as a target for clubs who can capitalize on his wider experience and understanding of the game want and clubs along with his coaching background.
Webb began training at Crystal Palace and then Tottenham’s academy, spotting Wilfried Zaha for Selhurst Park Club before securing managerial positions at Millwall and Bayer Leverkusen in Germany.
In 2010 he moved into recruitment at Southampton, Bournemouth and then Spurs before landing technical director positions in Ostersund where he worked with Potter and Huddersfield.
Webb was part of Bournemouth’s staff when the club promoted to the Premier League in 2015 and was a key figure in key signings such as Callum Wilson as head of first-team recruitment.
Webb spent nearly two seasons at Spurs after being reunited with Pochettino, who he previously worked with at Southampton, and helped bring the like Heung-min Son to the club in his role as head of elite potential identification.
Webb also tried to bring Emile Smith Rowe to Spurs but was later able to land him on loan at Huddersfield.
Since leaving the Terriers, Webb has been the subject of the interest of Gillingham and Swedish club Malmo as they look for managers as well as international teams.
