Ref Mike Dean axed from Premier League after Man Utd shocker

Ref Mike Dean has been axed from the Premier League.

The Sun says Dean has been demoted to the Championship following a string of high-profile errors.

The official attracted a huge amount of criticism for his shocking performance when West Ham hosted Manchester United earlier this month.

Dean sent off Sofiane Feghouli for a challenge on Phil Jones which was later rescinded.

And now he will have the pleasure of being in charge of Barnsley's clash with Leeds in the Yorkshire derby.

It is just the second Championship clash he has taken charge of this season after taking centre stage when Birmingham City hosted Aston Villa in October.
