Alan Pardew is no longer West Bromwich Albion manager following discussions between himself and the club on Monday.

The former Newcastle United, Crystal Palace and West Ham manager joined the Baggies at the end of November but after only winning once in that time - a 2-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion in January - his time was called after nine defeats in a row.

Assistant coach John Carver will also leave the club with Darren Moore taking over on a temporary basis.

In a statement, West Brom said: "West Bromwich Albion and Alan Pardew have agreed to mutually part company today following discussions between both parties.

"Assistant Head Coach John Carver will also be leaving.

"The Club would like to thank Alan and John for their efforts and wish them well in their future endeavours.

"First-team coach Darren Moore has been placed in charge of first team affairs until further notice.

"The Club will not be making any further comment at this time."
