Newcastle United have sacked their assistant manager Kevin Bond.
“Newcastle United has terminated Kevin Bond’s contract,” the club said.
“There is no further comment from the club,” they added in a statement to the London stock exchange.
Bond was named in last week’s Panorama programme that claimed a culture of bungs existed in English foootball.
Bond was secretly recorded saying he would consider discussing payments by a fictitious agency.
Bond formerly worked as assistant manager of Portsmouth under Harry Redknapp, who was also accused in the Panorama programme of indirectly approaching players under contract to rivals clubs.
“I am extremely disappointed Newcastle have terminated my contract without any proper investigation into the allegations,” Bond said in a statement.
“Newcastle have made their decision solely on the basis of a few sentences carefully selected and edited by Panorama.
“I intend to pursue all legal avenues to vindicate my reputation and restore my career and livelihood.”
