New favourite emerges for Newcastle United job after odds change overnight

Lucien Favre stormed into the lead to become Newcastleโ€™s next manager, according to the latest odds on Sky Bet.

The Swiss boss, who last managed Borussia Dortmund, is priced at 11/4, with a decision expected to be made on Steve Bruceโ€™s future this week.

Favre, 63, has also enjoyed spells at OGC Nice – where he signed Allan Saint-Maximin from Monaco in a deal worth ยฃ9m – along with Bundesliga sides Borussia Monchengladbach and Hertha Berlin.

Most sources suggest that under-fire Bruce will be sacked by Amanda Staveley, meaning Graeme Jones will be our caretaker manager for Sunday’s clash with Spurs at St James’ Park – the first game of the Saudi era.

Antonio Conte – my personal dream choice – is second in line at 11/2, with conflicting reports emerging about whether he would want to manage a side that currently sit 19th in the Premier League.

Other options, according to the bookies, include Roberto Martinez (7/1) Steven Gerrard (7/1), Graham Potter (9/1), Brendan Rodgers (12/1) and Zinedine Zidane (14/1), as the consortium look to stamp their authority on a new era at St Jamesโ€™ Park.
