Lampard won just 12 of his 44 games at the helm, with a win percentage of 27%.

Former Everton player Leighton Baines will take over as caretaker manager alongside under-21s head coach Paul Tait until a replacement is appointed.

Ex-Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa, who was dismissed by the Whites last season, is currently the bookies favourite to take over from Lampard.

A statement from Everton said: "Everyone at Everton would like to thank Frank and his coaching staff for their service during what has been a challenging 12 months.

"Frank and his team’s commitment and dedication have been exemplary throughout their time at the Club, but recent results and the current league position meant this difficult decision had to be taken. We wish Frank and all his backroom team well for their future in the game.

"The Club has started the process to secure a new manager and will provide updates on the appointment in due course."
