Kit Symons has been sacked as manager of Fulham.

The 44-year-old has left his post after an inconsistent start to the Sky Bet Championship season which has left the Cottagers in 12th place.

Fulham were beaten 5-2 at home by Birmingham, following a 3-1 loss at Burnley in midweek.

Club owner Shahid Khan has aspirations to return the club to the Premier League and the club have now acted by sacking the former Wales defender.

"No one can ever doubt the effort and commitment that Kit put into Fulham, not only as first team nanager, but also as a player here, and as a key figure in the success of our academy," Khan told the club's official website.

"Kit came through for us last year at this time and helped stabilise our club on and off the pitch, and we're very grateful for that and his many other contributions over the years.

"It is now time to take Fulham to the higher level of success that we expect from our first team manager and our players, and our supporters here in London and throughout the world deserve."
