Stoke City have parted company with manager Nathan Jones with immediate effect.

Assistant manager Paul Hart and first team coach Joaquin Gomez have also left the bet365 Stadium.

The Welshman became the Potters fourth manager in 12 months when joined in January.

He had left Luton, who he was on course to lead to successive promotions.

Under Jones, Stoke picked up three wins in 20 Championship games last season.

In this campaign, their only league victories have been against Swansea and Fulham.

Saturday's defeat to Millwall proved to be his last game in charge.

The Potters currently sit second bottom in the table, as they look to appoint a new manager.

The Club would like to thank Nathan and his staff for their efforts over the past nine months.

Nathan Jones told the club's official website: “I would like to thank John and Peter Coates, firstly for the opportunity to manage this Football Club and then for the continued support and patience throughout my time here. I would also like to thank the supporters for their fantastic support.

"Finally, I wish the Club the very best for the future.”

Stoke City say they are looking to make a new managerial appointment 'as swiftly as possible', but in the meantime Rory Delap, Kevin Russell and Andy Quy will take charge of first-team affairs.
