Steve McClaren and John Carver neck and neck in betting to become the Next Newcastle United Manager

Newcastle United's search for a new manager is proving to be a wide open affair, with caretaker boss John Carver and Derby County gaffer Steve McClaren featuring at the top of the market, whereas the out-of-work Tim Sherwood is also right in the mix to replace Alan Pardew at St James' Park. Meanwhile Pardew is expected to be officially unveiled as the new Crystal Palace manager in time for the London club's FA Cup tie away to Dover on Sunday.

At the time of writing Carver is a best-priced 4/1 with Bet365 to step up to the plate and bag the Toon job on a permanent basis. The 49-year-old got a taste of life in the spotlight on New Year's Day after overseeing the Magpies' 3-3 thriller at home to Burnley, which saw the hosts fail to hold onto a lead on three occasions. Carver, who was assistant to Bobby Robson (1999-2004) and then Pardew (2010-2014), has previously worked for the likes of Leeds, Luton, Toronto, Plymouth and Sheffield United.

Derby manager McClaren has emerged as the narrow 7/2 with the likes of Paddy Power and Sky Bet, despite distancing himself from the vacancy. The former England boss is enjoying a cracking season at Pride Park, with the Rams (3rd) fighting it out with the likes of Bournemouth and Ipswich at the top of the Championship. McClaren's impact at the Midlands club has unsurprisingly won him numerous plaudits, but he has dismissed a move to the Toon as pure speculation.

Most of the attention is currently focused on Carver and McClaren, but one name to watch out for is Tim Sherwood at 6/1 with Bet365. The former Tottenham gaffer is vying for a return to the dugout and earlier in the week was hotly linked with the West Brom post, only to be overlooked in favour of Tony Pulis. Elsewhere Saint-Etienne manager Christophe Galtier and Hull's Steve Bruce have drifted out to 18/1 and 25/1 respectively, while former Lyon boss Remi Garde is priced at 20/1.
