Odds slashed on Harry Redknapp to become next Leicester City manager

The 71-year-old was 200/1 with some bookmakers yesterday – he’s now 5/1

Former Bournemouth, Portsmouth, Tottenham & QPR manager Harry Redknapp has moved to third favourite to become the next Leicester City manager.

Much speculation has surrounded the future of current boss Claude Puel, who looks as though he could be departing the King Power after the club have reportedly become frustrated with his style of football.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is understood to be top of the Foxes wish list. The former Watford, Reading, Swansea and Liverpool boss is the current bookmakers favourite to take over from Puel, priced as short as 4/9 with Betfair.

Burnley’s Sean Dyche is second-favourite as things stand; the 47-year-old has impressed since taking charge of the Clarets back in 2012, however faces the all too real possibility of relegation this term should he stay in the North West as the Turf Moor outfit sit dangerously close to the drop zone.

Brendan Rodgers is currently odds-on favourite to take over from Puel.

Redknapp, who won reality TV show ‘I’m a Celebrity.. Get Me Out Of Here’ in November, has been out of football management since being sacked from Championship side Birmingham City back in 2017.

He hasn’t ever ruled out a return to the game, however taking charge of a Premier League side gunning for the Europa League this term could prove to be too big of a job for a man who turns 72 in just over a months time.

David Wagner, who this week left Premier League strugglers Huddersfield, is the bookies fourth favourite. The 47-year-old former Terriers boss is currently priced at odds of 14/1 with PaddyPower, while Slavisa Jokanovic – who began the season in charge of Fulham – is priced at odds of 25/1 with BetVictor.

Next Leicester City manager odds:

Brendan Rodgers – 1/1

Sean Dyche – 4/1

Harry Redknapp – 8/1

David Wagner – 14/1

Slavisa Jokanovic – 25/1

Nigel Pearson – 25/1

Sam Allardyce – 33/1

Rafa Benitez – 33/1

David Moyes – 33/1
