Former Lyon manager Remi Garde is now as short as 6/4 from 16/1 to be the next Newcastle manager.

Managing director Lee Charnley and chief scout Graham Carr have been charged with the task of finding Alan Pardew’s successor and with a poor start to John Carver’s time in temporary charge, they are set to step up their search for a new ‘head coach’.

Another manager very much in contention is Tim Sherwood. The former Spurs boss is currently without a club and is believed to be extremely interested in taking over at the Premier League side.

Next Newcastle United manager odds:

Steve McClaren – 9/4

Tim Sherwood – 3/1

Remi Garde – 7/2

Thomas Tuchel – 14/1
