The club is currently 18th in the Premier League and on a 10-game winless run. Their only win in the league this season came against Crystal Palace in early September.

In all, Hughes only won three matches from 22 attempts in the league.

He is the second Premier League manager to be sacked this season after Fulham showed Slavisa Jokanovic the Craven Cottage door last month.
