David Moyes has taken Everton coaches Steve Round, Chris Woods and Jimmy Lumsden all with him to Man Utd, it was confirmed today.
Moyes officially takes over as United boss from the retired Sir Alex Ferguson on Monday and he has wasted no time in bringing in his own backroom team - with Round, Lumsden and Woods all being released by the Blues from their contracts at Goodison Park.
The arrival of 42-year-old Round is no surprise given that he had worked with Moyes at Everton since July 2008 having also been former United number two Steve McClaren's assistant at Middlesbrough.
Former England international goalkeeper Woods also arrives after a five-year spell on Merseyside, while the 53-year-old has also worked as a coach with the United States national team since 2011.
Moyes has also drafted in 65-year-old Lumsden, who he first worked with at Preston North End before taking him to Everton in 2001.
Moyes said on the United website: "I have worked with Steve, Chris and Jimmy for a number of years and I am delighted they have decided to join me at this great club.
"They bring great qualities in their respective fields and I know that, like me, they feel that this is a challenge to relish. I have great faith that together, we can build upon the success this club has enjoyed over many years."
