Championship side Derby County have mutually agreed to part ways with manager Nigel Pearson.

The former Leicester City boss had been suspended pending an internal investigation, but their disciplinary process has now reached an end following his departure.

Pearson only took charge of Derby at the beginning of the season, but oversaw just one win from nine league matches.

After his exit was confirmed, Pearson released a statement describing his disappointment through the League Managers’ Association.

“Although disappointed that my tenure at Derby County has come to an abrupt and premature end, I would like to take the opportunity to thank my colleagues who supported me during my short time at the club,” it read.
 
“I was suspended by the club last week. The speculation in some areas of the media has not made the separation a smooth one and my suspension period has been difficult for both myself and family.
 
“I can confirm that I have not been made the subject of any disciplinary action.
 
“I leave in the knowledge that I have, together with my closest staff, strived to achieve progress. 
 
“I would like to wish the club and its supporters success moving forward.”

In their own statement announcing the latest development, Derby said they aim to appoint a new manager “as soon as possible”.
