Sheffield Wednesday and manager Jos Luhukay have parted company after a barren run of one win from ten games.
Luhukay leaves the Championship side 18th in the table and just five points clear of the relegation zone.
His departure comes two days after Wednesday chairman Dejphon Chansiri announced the South Yorkshire club was up for sale.
“I would like to place on record my thanks to Jos for the efforts he has given to Sheffield Wednesday,” Chansiri told swfc.co.uk.
“But now is the right time for both parties to move on and I wish him all the very best for the future.”
Coach Lee Bullen will take caretaker charge of the team, starting with Saturday’s game at home to Preston.
