Gray day for Leeds fans?
William Hill have slashed their odds for Simon Grayson, the Leeds boss, to be the next Villa manager after a sustained afternoon gamble from North Yorkshire based betting shop and online clients saw the odds collapse from 50/1 outsider to 5/2 favourite.
'The source of the bets would not give the lie to suggestions that someone connected to Leeds may have had the nod that Grayson was a serious contender for Villa' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Next permanent Villa boss: 5/2 Grayson; 3/1 Alex McLeish; 5/1 Moyes; Hughes; 9 Coyle; Poyet. Others on request.
Next permanent Chelsea Manager/Coach: 1/3 Hiddink; 5/2 Hughes; 11/2 Redknapp; 9 Villas-Boas; 10 Guardiola. Others on request.
Next Cardiff Boss: 11/8 Mackay; 2 Hughton; Robins; 5 Shearer; 6 Holloway; 7 McInnes. Others on request.
