Southampton have parted company with manager Mark Wotte.

Saints` new owner Markus Heibherr had indicated on Wednesday that he would be looking to install a new management team at St Mary`s, and the south coast club have now confirmed the Dutchman`s departure.

A statement read: "We wish to recognise Mr Wotte's efforts during a difficult period for all associated with the club. We wish him well for the future."

The statement continued: "Our decision is part of a wider strategic plan being implemented to improve all aspects of the club's operations, both on and off the field. In keeping with this plan we can confirm that the search for a new manager has already begun.

"Our search will be conducted in a systematic and professional manner. We will find the right candidate, who will fulfil the criteria necessary to move the club forward."

Stewart Henderson has been placed in temporary charge of the first team.
