Aidy Boothroyd favourite to replace Gareth Southgate as the new England Under-21 manager

Aidy Boothroyd has been installed as the 5/2 favourite (Sky Bet) to replace Gareth Southgate as the manager of the England Under-21 team.

Boothroyd, boss of the England Under-20s, was placed in temporary charge of the U21s while Southgate stepped up to manage the senior team on an interim basis following the departure of Sam Allardyce.

Southgate has since been handed the job on a permanent basis - officially vacating his position at the helm of the U21s on 30 November.

Under Boothroyd England U21s beat Kazakhstan 1-0 and then Bosnia & Herzegovina 5-0 in their final two Euro 2017 qualifiers (plus a triumph over Italy and defeat to France in friendlies), thus securing top spot in Group Nine as they progressed through to next summer’s European Championships in Poland.

England have since been drawn alongside hosts Poland, Slovakia and Sweden in Group A, with their first fixture schedule for 16 June (2017) against Slovakia.

Boothroyd previously led Watford up to the Premier League in 2006, before going on to manage Colchester, Coventry and Northampton, while he’s been in charge of the England U20s since 2014.

Other names in the frame include AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley (9/1), former Valencia assistant Phil Neville (10/1), the out-of-work Nigel Adkins (12/1), and Exeter gaffer Paul Tisdale, who is currently the longest-serving boss in the Football League.
