Jaidi is set to join Hartford Athletic in the USL Championship on a 12-month secondment from English club Southampton, where he was the under-23 coach.

“During these 12 months I will experience the head coach role. This is the next step of my development,” the 44-year-old told BBC Sport.

“I have been working for ten years in Southampton as a player and as a coach and during these years, I have learnt the basics of developing players and progressing players from the under-23’s to the first team.

“I have always been looking forward to my next step which is becoming the first team coach.”

Jaidi, who made 66 appearances for the Saints as a player, is looking forward to the opportunity of coaching a first team.
