The Mail newspapers have re-hired Lee Clayton, who previously oversaw Daily Mail, Mail on Sunday and Mail Online sports coverage, to the newly-created role of global publisher of sport.
Clayton is currently head of Talksport, which he joined following 14 years at the Mail.
The Mail said Clayton “will be charged with overseeing DMGT Media’s sports output around the world, creating new sports content streams and reflecting the growth in multiple digital platforms”.
Daily Mail editor editor Ted Verity said: “As a leader and innovator, Lee is the best in the business and I am delighted that he’s coming home to the Mail. Four years of hurt while he was away, never stopped me dreaming.
“I’m certain Lee’s knowledge and passion – combined with the unrivalled brilliance of our newspaper and online teams – will make this one of sport’s greatest comebacks.”
Clayton begins in his new role on 23 January.
