West Bromwich Albion have sacked manager Tony Pulis.

West Bromwich Albion currently sit 17th in the Premier League table, having lost their last four games.

Pulis was appointed manager of the club in 2015.

Assistant Head Coach Gary Megson has agreed to take charge of first-team affairs until further notice.

Chairman John Williams said:

These decisions are never taken lightly but always in the interests of the Club. We are in a results business and over the back end of last season and this season to date, ours have been very disappointing. We would like to place on record our appreciation of Tony's contribution and hard work during a period of transition for the Club which included a change of ownership. We wish him well in his future endeavours.

– John Williams, West Bromwich Albion Chairman
