Paulo Di CanioPaolo Di Canio is now the second favourite to become Leeds United’s next permanent manager after he resigned as Swindon Town manager last night.

Sky Bet have odds of 4/1 on Di Canio being GFH’s first managerial appointment while Nigel Adkins remains a narrow favourite at 7/4.

Adkins and Di Canio are followed by Neil Redfearn at 10/1, Owen Coyle and Sean O’Driscoll at 12/1 with Phil Parkinson and former Leeds United captain Gordon Strachan at 16/1.

Other former players in the list include Richard Naylor, Nick Barmby and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, all with odds of 20/1, Lucas Radebe, Noel Whelan and Gary McAllister at 33/1 and if you really want to give your money away, Tony Yeboah at odds of 66/1.

Gus Poyet meanwhile is considered to be no more likely to get the job than David O’Leary, both sharing odds of 25/1, while another name constantly thrown around by fans, Robert Di Matteo, isn’t even in the list. Champions League to Championship a little too far-fetched for Sky it seems.
