Odds Slashed On Redknapp Becoming Next Leicester Manager

I'm a Celebrity winner Harry Redknapp has had his odds slashed on becoming the next Leicester City manager, as pressure continues to mount on Claude Puel.

In the space of just 24 hours, Redknapp has been cut from 200/1 into 8/1 to take over at the King Power, with a flurry of bets placed on the King of the Jungle.

That makes him the new third favourite for the job, now only trailing current favourite Brendan Rodgers (6/4) and Sean Dyche (4/1) who's second favourite for the job.

Redknapp is the punter's pick for the job as well, attracting 33% of all bets on who will be the Foxes' next permanent manager.

Elsewhere, recently departed Huddersfield manager David Wagner is the 14/1 fourth favourite, Nigel Pearson follows at 25/1, and then comes ex-Fulham boss Slasiva Jokanovic at 25/1.

Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek said: "Many thought that Harry Redknapp's days as a top flight manager were numbered but, with rumours that Claude Puel's days may be numbered at Leicester, it seems that the popular 'wheeler-dealer' could be set for a return.

"Brendan Rodgers remains 2/5 with one firm though, and would seem the more logical choice should they prise him from Celtic."
