Swansea have confirmed the departure of manager Carlos Carvalhal after relegation from the Premier League.
The Swans were relegated from the Premier League on Sunday, the end of their seven-year stay in the top flight confirmed by a 2-1 home defeat to Stoke.
Carvalhal was appointed as Paul Clement's successor in December, just three days after leaving Sheffield Wednesday.
The Portuguese won five of his first nine league games as Swansea climbed to 13th place, but they were condemned to the Sky Bet Championship after picking up only three points from the last 27 on offer.
Carvalhal, in his farewell statement to the club's official website, said: "First of all, I must thank the chairman Huw Jenkins and majority owners Stephen Kaplan and Jason Levien for their full support.
"It has been a big pleasure to manage Swansea City, and I am very grateful for the way not only the club but the city welcomed me.
"From the players to the chefs, the physios and staff, I really enjoyed working with you all.
"I also appreciate the way the press at local and national level treated me. I like to think we had a very positive relationship.
"But most of all, I must thank the supporters. They were absolutely fantastic during my time here, and they follow the team up and down the country with huge passion. You should be very proud of your support.
"While Swansea and myself will go in a different direction, I wish the club all the best.
"I am sure I will be a Jack forever."
Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins told the club's official website: "We’d like to put on record our thanks to Carlos for his enthusiasm, hard work and commitment since arriving at the club in December.
"Naturally, we are all disappointed with the club’s relegation from the Premier League, and following discussions with Carlos, we felt it was in the best interests of both parties that we move in a new direction.
"We will now be looking to appoint a new manager in readiness for the 2018-19 season.
"While there are already rumours linking us with several managers, it is vital that we identify the right person to take this team forward."
