Newcastle United sack manager Chris Hughton
Hughton lead the Magpies back into the Premier League last season, but his services have now been dispensed with following Sunday's 3-1 defeat at West Brom.
The Tyneside club are currently in 11th place in the Premier League table and have enjoyed some good results with a 5-1 derby romp against bitter local rivals Sunderland, beaten Arsenal at Emirates Stadium and held champions Chelsea to a 1-1 draw at home.
But owner Mike Ashley has decided that the time has come to make a change at the helm and the search is now on for a new man to step through the seemingly revolving door to the manager's office at St James' Park.
