Bookmakers have today slashed odds on Billy Davies becoming the next Leeds United manager. Odds ranging from evens to 6/4 make the former Nottingham Forest manager clear favourite as Ken Bates flies back to head up the search.

Elsewhere, the rest of the field is now starting to stretch. Former favourites Neil Warnock and Lee Clark are now as high as 10/1 with Labrokes whilst Dave Jones is now at 4/1 with most bookmakers.

Meanwhile, odds on Neil Redfearn continue to shorten with Boyle Sports offering only 7/2 on Leeds’ caretaker manager.

For my money, the best value long shot is currently Sean O’Driscoll who is working for Nottingham Forest as a coach. I’m sure he’ll be looking for a way back into management and with odds of 33/1, a small token bet is surely worth the risk?

We’ve added a poll to see who you think Ken Bates will go for. Note, this is who you think will be hired, not who you want.

Who do you think will be next Leeds United manager?
