The 45-year-old previously worked with Darren Moore at West Bromwich Albion, and they reunited when Moore brought Shan to Hillsborough and the John Smith’s Stadium.

Shan, however, did not play for Moore’s team at Port Vale and has since been signed by League Two club Swindon. He will work alongside former Rotherham United defender Gavin Gunning, who is now the interim head coach at the County Ground.

Shan stated, “I joined just over a week ago, so I’m still adjusting to my new surroundings, but I’m thrilled to be on board. The guys seem like a great bunch, so I’m looking forward to getting started here.”

Swindon’s head of football, Jamie Russell, added: “We’ve brought him in because he’s worked in the EFL, and he’ll offer assistance and direction to Gavin for the final few fixtures of the 2023/24 season.

“Alongside that, he brings a wealth of experience from academy and higher-level first-team environments and he knows the level, understands the level and knows what is required.”

Shan appears to be in charge of Swindon’s Good Friday game against Notts County, who are 14th in League Two.
