Arsenal have announced that head of the club's youth academy Liam Brady will resign from his post in May next year.
The 56-year-old, who will be offered a different role within the club once he steps down, has spent 25 years with the North London club.
Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis told the club's official website: "Liam has a deep understanding of what it takes to discover and develop a talented youngster into someone who can perform at the highest level.
"He has made a massive contribution to Arsenal Football Club. It will be difficult to find a worthy successor but we will be looking for someone who can build on what Liam and his team have created."
