Warren Joyce In The running To Replace Nigel Pearson At Hull City

Former Hull City manager and captain Warren Joyce has emerged as the early favourite to replace Nigel Pearson at the KC Stadium. Pearson's imminent move to Leicester City has yet to be completed as Hull are believed to be holding out for a hefty pay-out, reportedly in excess of £1million. Due to his inevitable departure Stan James have opened up a Next Hull City Manager betting market with several top names on the list, including the likes of Steve McClaren and Dave Jones. Hull have made a decent start to the season and up until recent back-to-back defeats had been on a nine game unbeaten run. They are currently one point outside of the play-offs and will be eager to appoint a manager who can continue their push for promotion.

Joyce earned iconic status at Hull after playing an inspiration role as manager in saving them from relegation out of the Football League in the 1998-1999 season, which has become more commonly known to City fans as "the Great Escape". The 46-year-old managed the club for two years before being rather harshly replaced by the more experienced Brian Little. In 2006 he took up a coaching role at Belgian club Royal Antwerp before joining Manchester United in 2008 where he is now working as their reserve team coach. It is unknown whether Joyce would leave his job with the Premier League Champions but he may be tempted considering the promising position Hull are in.

Also in the running to replace Pearson is another Hull legend Nick Barmby. The 37-year-old has made 180 appearances for the club since he joined in 2004 and has been a player-coach since July 2010. It is more likely that Barmby will instead become an assistant but he may decide it's time to take the plunge into management. The former Liverpool player knows the squad well and would certainly be a cheaper option, with the owners reportedly wanting to run the club on a tighter budget. MK Dons boss Karl Robinson has also been named as a possible replacement, with the young manager impressing since taking over at The Dons in 2010. Former Cardiff City boss Dave Jones is also in the frame as is Steve McClaren and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
