Beardsley, speaking through his solicitors, said he was looking for a "new challenge".

However, neither statement addressed the allegations of bullying and racism made against Beardsley by a number of players, notably Yasin Ben El-Mhanni.

Beardsley, 58, categorically denied the claims, which are still "under consideration" by the FA.

An FA spokesperson said: "The allegations made against Peter Beardsley continue to be under consideration by the FA. We are not in a position to comment further at this time."

Beardsley reportedly agreed a financial settlement before leaving United.
