Sheffield United have parted company with manager Micky Adams.

Adams, a lifelong Blades fan, had stressed he had wanted to remain at Bramall Lane in a bid to revive the club's fortunes after a miserable campaign which saw them relegated from the npower Championship.

However, the 49-year-old met with owner Kevin McCabe on Tuesday when he was informed his services were no longer required.
