William Hill have seen a flurry of support for Fulham boss Chris Coleman to become the next Newcastle manager.

The Bookies have cut his odds from 16/1 to 7/1 fifth favourite.

‘The gamble started in South Wales and moved down towards London from there’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Hills make Martin O’Neill 5/4 favourite with Stuart Pearce at 7/2; Sam Allardyce 9/2 and Luis Felipe Scolari 11/2.

Claudio Ranieri is 8/1 along with Bryan Robson.
