Former Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has been installed as the bookies favourite to become the new Swansea City manager - just six days after losing his job as Crystal Palace boss.

Pressure had been mounting on Pardew from Palace fans for a number of weeks, and his dismissal was met with a sense of vindication from Newcastle fans, who themselves had to suffer a disastrous 2014 under Pardew.

Yet, Pardew could be back in a Premier League job before the New Year, as he has been made the 5/2 favourite to succeed Bob Bradley in the Liberty Stadium hot-seat, after the American was sacked yesterday.

Wales manager Chris Coleman has been made the 3/1 second favourite, while Ryan Giggs - who was interviewed for the role back in October - is backed in at a best priced 5/1 as third favourite.

You can get odds ranging from 5/1 to 8/1 for former England manager Roy Hodgson to get the job, while former Birmingham manager Gary Rowett can be backed at as high as 12/1.
