With four sackings in a torrid 15 months spell, just who will want to take the Wolverhampton Wanderers managers job?

Or to be more specific the ‘Head Coach’ role, as we’ve decided to model ourselves on that wonderfully successful global brand that is West Brom.

Crewe boss Steve Davis was linked to the job at the back end of last week, but the 47-year-old according to the BBC had stated that he would not be applying for the vacancy and so his odds with the bookies immediately drifted. He’s now available at 20/1 with SkyBet.

Following his resignation from Millwall on the same day as Dean Saunders sacking Kenny Jackett has been heavily linked with the role and has been one of the bookies favourites throughout.

Now available at 7/1 with bet365, The Telegraph believe the 51-year-old could be set to hold with the Molineux hierarchy such as Chief executive Jez Moxey and director of football operations and recruitment Kevin Thelwell.

Meanwhile Barnsley boss David Flitcroft reportedly rejected an offer from Wolves before signing his new Barnsley contract.

The 39-year-old of course managed to avoid the drop out of the Championship on the final day of the season, he is still available for bets but as high as 66/1 with betVictor.

48-year-old club legend Steve Bull has openly come out and said that if he was offered the job of course he would take it, but he stopped short of throwing his name into the hat as he believes someone else would be better suited to the role. Either way if you fancied a punt he’s also at 66/1.

Former England boss Steve McClaren has become the latest big name manager linked with the position.

The 52-year-old who has managed England, won the League Cup with Middlesbrough, reached the UEFA Cup final and has won the Eredivisie championship with FC Twente.

Spells at German side Vfl Wolfsburg and Nottingham Forest may not have proved successful, but if we could get McClaren whilst in League One surely that would be seen as a bit of a coup?

The bookies think it’s possible as he’s currently second favourite at 5/1 with bet365.

The current favourite however remains as Owen Coyle who is as short as 3/1 with betVictor.

Other contenders according to the bookies are Neil Warnock, Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson and MK Dons manager Karl Robinson.
