The 55-year-old came to the club in 2012 as part of Dave Jones' backroom staff and was appointed head coach in January 2014.

The Owls finished thirteenth in the Championship this season and were taken over by Thai businessman Dejphon Chansiri in January.

In a statement, Mr Chansiri said, "This is not a decision I have taken lightly but one that I believe is in the best interests of our club ahead of the 2015/16 season. The club will be taking a new direction next season and it is my belief that the appointment of a new head coach will help achieve my desire of bringing Premier League football back to Hillsborough.

“I would like to thank Stuart for his hard work and diligence on behalf of Sheffield Wednesday and wish him all the very best moving forward.”

New Sheffield United manager Nigel Adkins has played down speculation of a move to bring back former player Billy Sharp.

Sharp has worked under Adkins at three different clubs during his career, most notably Scunthorpe, where he scored more than 50 goals in just two seasons.

However, the new Blades boss was holding his cards very close to his chest during an informal media briefing.

ITV Calendar's Chris Dawkes caught up with him:
