Former Everton assistant coach Graeme Jones has been sacked from Championship side Luton Town. 

The official statement says: “Luton Town have today come to a mutual agreement with Graeme Jones on the termination of his contract as first-team manager.

“Given the current circumstances affecting not only football but the world as whole, the Club are taking an early move to restructure in order to reduce its cost base and to create efficiencies within the football department.

“As a result of amicable discussions, Graeme and the board of directors have agreed terms upon which he will leave his role with immediate effect.

“The board would like to place on record their thanks to Graeme for his efforts over the last twelve months. We wish him and his family well during these difficult times for everyone, and in his future career.”

Jones was ex-Toffees coach Roberto Martinez’ assistant for three years, from 2013 to 2016. 

He took charge of Luton Town before the start of this season. The club is now in the relegation zone of the Championship, which became the key reason for the decision to sack him.
