According to Sky Sports Tony Pulis has left Stoke City after seven years in charge following talks with chairman Peter Coates on Tuesday.
Stoke finished 13th in their fifth Premier League campaign but Pulis had come under criticism for his style of play as the club dropped down the table.
The Potters made a strong start to the campaign and were just four points off the top four on 1 December. However, they only managed four league wins in 23 subsequent games after further strengthening of the squad last summer and the Chairman Peter Coates end of season debrief has resulted in a parting of the ways.
The Welshman guided Stoke to the Premier League and to an FA Cup final against Manchester City in 2011, which they lost 1-0 and into Europe.
Chelsea ex-boss Roberto Di Matteo is the bookies favourite to succeed him.
