Promoted epl club Hull City have announced the sacking of manager Mike Phelan after a poor run in form.
The manager was appointed on a caretaker basis after the sacking of Steve Bruce, and got a permanent deal in October.
However, Hull have won just one of their last 18 top-flight matches, with Monday’s 3-1 defeat at West Brom proving Phelan’s final match in charge.
A statement read: “The club can announce this evening that it has parted company with head coach Mike Phelan.
“We would like to thank Mike for his efforts both as assistant manager [to Steve Bruce] and head coach over the last two years.
“The search for a replacement has begun and an announcement will be made in due course.”
Former Birmingham City boss Gary Rowett is being heavily linked with replacing Phelan.
