We have so many brilliant people here, all of whom contribute to what we have achieved and I have nothing but confidence we will continue to develop, progress and improve as an organisation.
Ward succeeded Michael Edwards in June 2022, stepping up after 18 months as Assistant Sporting Director.
Before that, he had been Loan Pathways & Football Partnerships Manager for five years after being promoted from his first position at the Merseyside club, European Scouting Manager in October 2015.
Ward worked closely with his predecessor Edwards, who himself had spent a decade at Liverpool after working his way up from Head of Analytics.
On Ward's appointment last year, Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp added: "Julian and I have worked closely since he became loans and pathway manager, plus even more so in his wider role during the past 12 months.
“We have so many brilliant people here, all of whom contribute to what we have achieved and I have nothing but confidence we will continue to develop, progress and improve as an organisation.”
Immediate change at Wolves
Sellars has spent eight years at Wolves, most recently as Technical Director. He has also held roles such as Under-21 Manager, Academy Manager and General Manager.
He has been succeeded by Matt Hobbs, who steps up from Chief Scout and Head of Player Recruitment to Sporting Director.
Hobbs has been with the club since 2015.
Wolves, which sit bottom of the Premier League, recently announced Julen Lopetegui as their new manager.
Wolves chairman Jeff Shi said: “Scott has been a big influence at Wolves in my time at the club, and you can see from his elevation through different departments and roles how highly we think of him.
“A football person through and through, with exceptional experience in the game as a player and a coach, Scott brought that with him to work every day and used it to improve the next generation of young footballers.”
