Leeds United next manager: Aston Villa, West Brom and Birmingham City men among favourites as Allardyce gets axe - gallery

Here are the current favourites to replace Sam Allardyce at Leeds United, including an ex-Aston Villa manager and West Brom’s Carlos Corberan.

Leeds United and Sam Allardyce have officially parted ways after the Lilywhites’ relegation from the Premier League to the Sky Bet Championship.

The ex-England boss failed his task of keeping Leeds in the top flight and the club are now looking elsewhere for a successor.

Merely hours after the announcement, the apparent frontrunners are already in place with West Brom’s Carlos Corberan among those touted.

There are also former Aston Villa, Leicester City and Birmingham City men on the list put together by Sky Bet. Here are the favourites, as of 11am on Friday, June 2.
