Ex-Watford manager Giuseppe Sannino is the new favourite to take over at Leeds United after Oscar Garcia chose to join the Hornets.

Garcia was reported to be in discussions with Leeds over the vacant manager’s job, but ironically, the man he replaced could now be in line for the Elland Road hot-seat.

Sannino resigned as manager of the Watford on Monday after just 10 months in charge.

The Italian is best priced at 5/4 with Betfair and William Hill, with Steve Clarke at 5/2 with Betfair and Bet Victor.

Other leading candidates include caretaker-boss Neil Redfearn at 9/2 with Betfair, Simon Grayson at 11/1 with Paddy Power and Mark Cooper, son of former Leeds player Terry, at 8/1 with Betfair.
