The eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed that on Vital Wolves we have chucked in the name Ståle Solbakken as one of the favourites for the Molineux job.

This name wasn’t just plucked out of the air for no reason, this man has real credentials, all-be-it in Europe.

The 44-year-old has won five league titles in Denmark with Copenhagen, winning the Danish Superliga in 2005-06, 2006-07, 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11, he also won the Danish Cup in 2009.

His record earned him a move to Bundesliga side FC Köln, but after just one year in charge he is now out of work.

Since we mentioned him in passing, his odds have been slashed to just 1/5 with SkyBet: ‘We can only assume these punters know something we don’t as there’s little in the public domain linking Solbakken to the job and he’s hardly a well-known figure in England.’ Sky Bet Football Trader Paul Lowery told TeamTalk.

He continued: ‘The nature of the bets is also somewhat telling with a few new accounts created and used solely for this market.’

Is a real contender? Who knows, but the whispers we heard are probably the reason why his odds have fallen so dramatically recently.
