SAM ALLARDYCE is departing Leeds after failing to keep them up in his four games in charge.
The ex-Newcastle and West Ham boss, 68, exits after a 25-day reign following talks with CEO Angus Kinnear.
The Telegraph revealed Big Sam’s fate as the survival specialist saw Leeds sink on the final day of the Premier League.
Sunday’s 4-1 home loss against Tottenham sent the Whites down by five points – while rivals Everton, who stayed up, and Leicester, both won.
Allardyce’s chat with Kinnear over his future was scheduled before relegation.
He previously performed miracles in ensuring Bolton and Sunderland avoided the drop.
And Leeds were praying he could do the same again – as their third manager this season.
The Whites axed Jesse Marsch in late February and interim chief Javi Gracia in early May.
But Leeds picked up just one point from Allardyce’s four matches.
After opening with a 2-1 loss at champions-to-be Manchester City on May 6, the Whites rescued a creditable 2-2 home draw with Newcastle.

But they then slumped 3-1 at West Ham and by an even bigger margin at Spurs – when they needed to pick up three points and cross their fingers.
Following that Tottenham disaster, Allardyce said he would hold talks with club bosses to see whether both parties were “aligned”.
But now it appears Leeds will look for a longer-term appointment as they return to the Championship following just three years back in the top flight.
