The club announced on its website on Sunday, November 6th, 2021. According to the statement released by the club, they wished him well in his future endeavours.

Aston Villa has been on a recent poor run of form as they have failed to win a game in their last five Premier League matches.

When Dean joined us in October 2018 our team was struggling in the Championship. He immediately transformed the atmosphere and performances and achieved the ultimate success of leading Villa back to the Premier League within the season, a rare feat. He then secured our place in the Premier League after a tough campaign and took us to a Cup final at Wembley. However, after a good start to last season, this year we have not seen the continuous improvement in results, performances and league position which we have all been looking for. For this reason, we have decided to make a change now to allow time for a new head coach to make an impact. The Board would like to sincerely thank Dean for his many excellent achievements, on and off the pitch, during this time. Everyone knows how much Aston Villa means to Dean and his family. He has represented the Club with distinction and dignity universally liked and respected by everybody associated with Aston Villa our staff, players and supporters alike. We wish him the very best. The process of replacing Dean will now begin and the Club will update supporters in due course.

Villa has managed to secure 10 points in their opening eleven games of the league this season.
