Hull City are on the hunt for their fifth manager in 18 months after Leonid Slutsky left the club by mutual consent on Sunday night.

Many expected Slutsky to lose his job last week following a 3-2 defeat to Bristol City, during which they blew a two goal lead, however he somehow managed to cling onto his post...

...But now, despite Saturday's creditable 2-2 draw away to Sheffield Wednesday, which saw Michael Dawson equalise in the 95th minute, Slutsky departs the KCOM after six months at the helm.

In total the Russian won four, drew seven and lost 10 of his 21 league and cup matches in charge, leaving the struggling club 20th in the Championship - two places and three points above the relegation zone.

The club's head of club strategy, Oleg Yarovinsky, has also departed after only 42 days in the job.

Former Southampton manager Nigel Adkins has emerged as the hot odds-on favourite for the Hull vacancy, while the likes of Paul Lambert, Aitor Karanka, Simon Grayson and Tony Pulis are all being linked with the post.

In a statement Hull vice-chairman Ehab Allam said of Slutsky's exit: 

"Leonid has worked tirelessly in his role and has acted with complete honour and been a pleasure to work with.

"Unfortunately results have not improved as both parties would have hoped and therefore it was agreed for the relationship to come to an end."

Head of club strategy Oleg Yarovinsky has also left his role at the KCOM Stadium.
