A top executive at Morrisons is in discussions to leave the company just days after it emerged that the grocer was displaced as the UK’s fourth biggest supermarket chain.

Morrisons’ chief operating officer Trevor Strain, who was previously its finance chief, is close to finalising his departure, Sky News reported.

Strain, who has frequently been touted as a potential replacement for Morrisons’ chief executive David Potts, has not officially resigned but is expected to do so soon.

He is said to have been approached about executive roles at several listed and privately owned companies in recent months.

Strain is also a former Tesco executive, he has worked for Morrisons since 2009, and was promoted to his current role in October 2019.

The timing of his potential departure comes at a time when Morrisons has been delisted from the London Stock Exchange after being acquired by CD&R in a deal worth about £7 billion.

Last week, it was revealed that Morrisons had been usurped by Aldi, the German-owned discounter, as the UK’s fourth-biggest grocer.
