THE betting remains wide open this morning (Wednesday) on who will become the next permanent Leeds United manager.

Bookmakers have Neil Warnock (pictured) and Billy Davies as 11-4 joint favourites to succeed Simon Grayson.

Caretaker boss Neil Redfearn is next in the betting at 3-1, followed by Dave Jones (7-1), Keith Hill (7-1), Lee Clark (10-1), Paul Lambert (12-1), Gianfranco Zola (20-1), Gordon Strachan (20-1), Stuart McCall (20-1), Roberto Di Matteo (25-1), Radi Antic (25-1) and Alan Curbishley (25-1).

Redfearn looks almost certain to be in charge for Saturday’s clash against Brighton at Elland Road.

The 46-year-old improved his chances of landing the role on a permanent basis or on a rolling deal until the end of the season by steering Leeds to 3-0 victory at Bristol City last Saturday.
