Chelsea and West Ham favourite set for exit after Sky Sports make decision ahead of new season

Former Chelsea defender Scott Minto has been axed by Sky Sports.

The broadcaster are shaking things up in their football department with Matt Le Tissier, Phil Thompson and Charlie Nicholas all out the door in the last day or so.

Minto is the latest to join that list after 13 years working with Sky Sports.

The former Chelsea and West Ham player often presented EFL coverage and he had worked on Sky’s La Liga coverage before they lost the rights for the Spanish top tier.

“It is with a heavy heart that after 13 incredible years with Sky Sports I share the news that I will no longer be working with Sky and be part of their ongoing football coverage,” Minto said in a statement on social media.

“While the decision wasn’t mine, I leave Sky with nothing but fond memories of covering the EFL, Play-Offs, Carabao Cup, Spanish football, Revista De La Liga and many more.

“It has been a truly fantastic experience and a privilege to work with, and alongside, so many talented individuals.

“I would like to wish the staff and teams at Sky all the best for the coming season – a season which is set to be truly spectacular both in the Premier League and EFL.
