Shrewsbury Town manager Micky Mellon has departed the club amid speculation that he will drop down two divisions to take over at Tranmere Rovers.
The 44-year-old took over at New Meadow in May 2014 and earned the Shrews promotion back to League One at the first attempt.
The club narrowly survived in the division last season, however, and are currently in the relegation zone having won just twice from their 11 games so far this term.
In a statement on its official website, Shrewsbury said: "Shrewsbury Town manager Micky Mellon has this morning left the club by mutual consent.
"The club would like to thank Micky and Mike for all they have achieved during their times at the club."body check tags ::
