The hunt for the next Wolverhampton Wanderers manager has now officially become a total farce.

Steve Bruce remains the bookies favourite for the post, despite Steve Morgan apparently cooling his interest after fan opposition.

The former Birmingham, Wigan and Sunderland boss was interviewed for the first time a week ago and the Daily Star and Express believe he is now beginning to get impatient with the wait and could even withdraw his interest.

Yesterday’s favourites, Reading boss Brian McDermott and Brighton manager Gus Poyet also appear to have been off the mark.

Brighton want around £2million in compensation to prize Poyet away, while McDermott has reportedly agreed a new contract at Reading.

The Express & Star believe that Alan Curbishley was once again approached early this week, but the former Charlton and West Ham manager turned us down again as he does not hold a shared vision for the club with chairman Steve Morgan and is unwilling to agree a three-month contract.

Despite reportedly turning the job down TWICE, he remains the third favourite with the bookies, simply because no one really has any clue on who could be in the running, with the options now appearing fairly limited.

Former Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark remains second favourite.

Vital Wolves Comment: Lee Clark actually appears to be one the most popular choices out of those recently mentioned.

On our front page poll Clark has taken 11% of the vote, ahead of Steve Bruce 5%, Brian McDermott 3% and Gus Poyet 8%.

The most popular option amongst the users on Vital Wolves was Alan Curbishley who had 53% before he withdrew from the running for the first time.

47% would like to see Mick McCarthy return.
