Betis finalise Poyet settlement

Real Betis have finalised a settlement to terminate the contract of under-fire manager Gus Poyet, according to reports in Spain.

Estadio Deportivo report that the club have agreed to pay the Uruguayan €250,000 to end his two-year deal signed back in May, after a slow start to the campaign.

The club have come under increasing pressure to dismiss the 47-year-old since Sunday's 2-0 defeat at Villarreal, with fans group Gol Sur 1907 announcing their members would be boycotting the team's matches until he was sacked.

"The penas that make up Gol Sur 1907 have held a meeting and decided they will not go back to Estadio Benito Villamarin until the board sacks Poyet," read a statement released on Wednesday.

The severance package has taken a few days to finalise as the club wishes to limit the financial damage it will do on the club's prospects in the January transfer window, when they will hope to strengthen their squad but with players reportedly ready to be sold, they are prepared to take the hit.
