The bookies have installed Dave Jones as their new favourite to be next Leeds United boss.

Odds on Jones being appointed at Elland Road have dropped sharply to around 2/1, with one bookie (Stan James) offering only evens.

The odds on early favourites Neil Warnock and Lee Clark have both lengthened to around 5/1. Those two are followed by caretaker boss Neil Redfearn whose odds have dropped to 8/1 following the 3-0 victory over Bristol City.

Other potential candidates of note are Bryan Robson, whose odds are as low as 6/1 with Bodog and Steve Bruce who is hovering around the 12/1 mark.

Plenty of ridiculous names remain in the list such as Paul Lambert at 11/1 with William Hill and Kevin Blackwell at 33/1 with Boyle Sports. 

But for those of you with far too much money and a common-sense deficiency, you can get 150/1 with Sky Bet on Vinnie Jones and the same odds on Eric Cantona with Paddy Power. Even more ridiculous – I hope – is the 66/1 William Hill are offering on Roy Keane.
