West Brom Chairman John Williams and chief executive Martin Goodman have been dismissed by the Baggies.

The latest changes come barely 24 hours after the Baggies lost 3-0 at Chelsea on Monday - a result which leaves them at the bottom of the Premier League table with 11 games left.

A club statement reads: "WEST Bromwich Albion today announce changes at the senior level of the Club.

"Chairman John Williams and Chief Executive Martin Goodman have been given notice of termination of their contracts and have been placed on garden leave with immediate effect.

"Following his recent appointment as a director of WBA Holdings, the Club's controlling company, Mark Jenkins is returning to be the football club's CEO.

"These changes follow Albion's poor results this season which currently sees the Club at the bottom of the Premier League. There will be no further comment from the Club at this time."

A Club spokesperson said: "We would like to thank John and Martin for all their efforts since their appointments and wish them well for the future."

Mark, who was previously CEO of the football club for 14 years, ten of which were spent in the Premier League, said: "There is much to do but for now the focus must solely be on the remaining games of this season."
