Southampton have parted company with manager Mark Hughes.
The Premier League strugglers announced on Monday that the 55-year-old Welshman had left the club after winning just one of their 14 league matches so far this season.
"We would like to express our thanks to Mark and his staff for all of their efforts during their time at St Mary's," a statement read.
"The search for a new manager to take the club forward is already under way.
"First team assistant coach Kelvin Davis will lead the team for Wednesday's Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley."
Hughes took over at St Mary's last March and guided them to Premier League survival and an FA Cup semi-final but was unable to inspire a better campaign this time around.
The Saints currently reside in the bottom three after 14 games, of which they have won only one and lost seven.
Hughes, who played for the club in the late 1990s, leaves the club following Saturday's 2-2 draw with Manchester United.
They were leading that game 2-0 and that is symptomatic of some of their problems as during Hughes' tenure they dropped 20 points from winning positions, while the 12 goals scored in 14 games has also been an obvious hindrance.
Davis, who played over 300 times for the club, will lead them into a difficult encounter at Wembley on Wednesday as they face Tottenham in the Premier League.
Man United came back from two goals down to earn point against Southampton but struggles continue.Read the full story ›

Mark Hughes has urged the Premier League to emerge from the "dark ages" by introducing video assistant referee technology.
Southampton boss Hughes criticised referee Simon Hooper after he disallowed a Charlie Austin goal for offside during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Watford.
Striker Austin branded the decision "a joke" during a passionate post-match interview.
The visitors also had reason to feel aggrieved with the officials at St Mary's as they were denied a penalty when Ryan Bertrand, who was on a yellow card, appeared to bring down Nathaniel Chalobah inside the box.
"It needs to come in. I was surprised they didn't introduce it at the beginning of this year (season), I think a lot of people in the game were," Hughes said of VAR.
"A lot of other competitions have introduced it very, very quickly.
"All the major sports have video reviews and for some reason the Premier League, which is watched all around the world, is still in the dark ages."
