Paolo Di Canio In West Ham Linkby Jack Kitson / 19 February 2013, 09:59Tweet
Paolo Di Canio's surprise departure from Swindon Town has reportedly opened up the door for the Italian to return to former club West Ham in the summer. Di Canio quit the Robins on Monday night following a series of "broken promises" but due his impressive work at the County Ground he will not be short of offers to return to the management arena.
Sam Allardyce's contract at West Ham runs out at the end of the season. The owners are refusing to offer the former Bolton boss a new deal until safety is assured but the availability of Di Canio now makes things very interesting. The former Hammers player is a hugely popular figure at the East London club and there is no doubt that a large section of supporters would love to see the colourful personality back at Upton Park.
Ladbrokes have opened up a Paolo Di Canio Next Job market, with West Ham the 8/1 favourites to be his next destination, meanwhile Celtic are priced at 33/1. The Italian maverick is also now available at 8/1 with Sky Bet in the Next Coventry City Manager Odds and 20/1 in the Next Notts County Manager Market.
