Rémi Garde has left his position as Aston Villa manager "by mutual consent", the club has announced.

The Frenchman replaced Tim Sherwood in November on a three-and-a-half year deal but was unable to revive the club's fortunes.

He leaves Villa bottom of the table and 12 points off safety, with relegation to the Championship now almost inevitable.

In a statement the club said:

The club would like to place on record its sincere thanks to Rémi for all his efforts during a difficult period and wish him well in the future.

Eric Black will take over as acting manager until the club appoints a new manager.
