BARNSLEY’S chief executive officer Khaled El-Ahmad has agreed to take up a role at Minnesota United FC at the end of the season.
El-Ahmad’s contract was due to end at the current season - and he will remain at the club unless there is a mutual termination once a suitable replacement is found.
A club spokesperson said: “The club wishes Mr El-Ahmad all the best for the future and thanks him for his service.
“The search for a new CEO has been in motion for the last few months alongside preparation for the January transfer window and the club are in the process of identifying a suitable replacement to continue to drive forward on and off the pitch.”
