Aston Villa have confirmed the departure of manager Remi Garde.

In a statement on their official website, Villa confirmed that the French coach had left the West Midlands outfit by mutual consent.

Garde signed a three-and-a-half year deal with Villa in November but, following a dismal run of results, has agreed to leave the relegation-threatened club.

Villa look doomed

Villa are currently rock bottom of the Premier League table, 12 points from safety, and look almost certain to be relegated.

This weekend they take on Chelsea at Villa Park and it shouldn’t be too much longer before their relegation is confirmed.

Moyes is the favourite to replace Garde

According to Oddschecker, David Moyes is currently the bookmakers’ favourites to succeed Garde, followed by Nigel Pearson and Steven Bruce.
