Norwich have sacked manager Alex Neil "in the best interests of the club".

The 35-year-old joined the Canaries in January 2015 but, after winning promotion to the Premier League at the first attempt and then failing to stave off relegation, he leaves the club eighth in the EFL Championship.

Former West Brom boss Alan Irvine steps up from his role as first-team coach to take charge of Saturday's game against Blackburn.

A statement read: "The Board has taken the tough but unanimous decision, believing it is in the best interests of the Club for a new manager to be in place through a crucial summer transfer window and into next season."
