Newcastle coach Graeme Jones is priced at 5/1 to be promoted to manager of the Magpies in place of current boss Bruce.
Jones has only ever had one year as a manager, which saw him take charge of Luton Town between May 2019 and April the next year where he won just 12 in 41 matches before leaving Kenilworth Road via mutual consent.
The 51-year-old Gateshead-born coach has an impressive CV as a coach, having Joined Roberto Martinez’s coaching team at Swansea City, following the Spaniard to the likes of Wigan Athletic who won the FA Cup in the 2012/13 season, as well as to Everton and the Belgium national team.
Since losing his job at Luton, Jones went on to assist Jason Tindall as a first-team coach at Bournemouth, before leaving the Vitality Stadium to take up the same role at St James’ Park.
This job would be some step up for Jones to make having only managed Luton at a senior level, but, the Magpies have been known to give members of their coaching staff chances, such as Chris Hughton and John Carver, seeing Jones priced at 5/1 to become their new manager.
