David Unsworth will remain in his role as manager of Everton's Under-23s after turning down an offer to take over at Oxford United.

Having guided the U23s to the Premier League 2 title last season and gained Premier League experience with a six-week stint overseeing first-team affairs in the autumn, the 44-year-old had been selected by the League One club as their chosen successor to Pep Clotet whom they recently dismissed following a poor run of form.

Following talks with the Oxford hierarchy, however, Unsworth has, according to the Liverpool Echo, informed them of his decision not to take the position.
