Former Fulham coach Slavisa Jokanovic is set to leave his role as Sheffield United manager.

Jokanovic, who has won promotion to the Premier League with Watford and Fulham, was appointed as the permanent replacement to Chris Wilder in May 2021 following the club's relegation to the Championship.

Despite making a slow start to life at United, something his allies attributed to the club’s refusal to overhaul the squad which was relegated from the Premier League last season, Jokanovic remained convinced he could win a third career promotion in South Yorkshire.

News of the decision to part company with Jokanovic stunned United’s players when it was relayed to them before training at the Randox Health Academy complex this morning.

Sheffield United sit 16th in the Championship table on 23 points, having won at Reading on Tuesday to end a four-game run without a win.

The Blades have lost eight of their 19 Championship fixtures so far this campaign and are eight points adrift of the play-off positions.

Jokanovic, 53, would become the fifth manager to leave their managerial position in the second tier of English football this season.
