Bob Bradley, Preki and Neil Lennon all on Leicester City's radar

Bob BradleyBob Bradley, alongside Predrag 'Preki' Radosavljevic, emerged as a surprise candidate for the Leicester City Job on Thursday, and now the former USA head coach finds himself as the outright favourite in the betting, although the club's search for Nigel Pearson's successor is likely to drag on into next week.

Bradley, 7/4 with Sky Bet, is currently in charge of Stabeak, who play their football in Norway's top-tier. The 57-year-old may lead the way at the summit of the volatile market, but according to reports the Foxes have made no approach for his services.

Bradley has previously managed the Egyptian national team, and MLS sides Chivas USA, MetroStars, and Chicago Fire, but he is perhaps most well-known for his time in charge of the States, with whom he oversaw from 2006 through to 2011. The American led his troops to Gold Cup glory in 2007, 2nd-place at the 2009 Confederations Cup, while they reached the knockout-stages of the 2010 World Cup.

Despite the emergence of Bradley as the narrow new favourite, Leicester's search for a new manager remains an extremely competitive affair, with Preki and Bolton boss Neil Lennon still right in the mix for the vacancy. Guus Hiddink, Claudio Ranieri and Martin O'Neill have all drifted in the betting this week, although Roberto Di Matteo could be worth an outside bet at 20/1 with Ladbrokes.
