Oscar Garcia in line for a return to the Championship

Oscar GarciaFormer Brighton boss Oscar Garcia could be in line for a return to the Championship managerial arena, with the Spaniard featuring prominently in both the Leeds (5/2) and Watford (1/4) next manager markets. The 41-year-old is currently out-of-work having left Maccabi Tel Aviv last week, citing securing concerns in Israel as his reason for departing.

Leeds have been on the hunt for a new gaffer since last week after the club sacked Dave Hockaday just six matches into the new season. A whole host of managers have been in the mix so far, but as things stand it is Steve Clarke who currently leads the way in the betting at 7/4 with Sky Bet. Garcia heads the chasing pack at 5/2, followed by Giuseppe Sannino at 8/1, and then the former Whites boss Simon Grayson is now out at 10/1.

However, according to reports Garcia is set to shun Leeds in order to take up the reins at Watford who are still recovering from the shock departure of Sannino, who surprisingly exited Vicarage Road on Sunday. The Hornets have enjoyed a decent start to the campaign, picking up 12 points from five games, which has propelled them up to second in the table behind league leaders Nottingham Forest. Garcia is currently the odds-on favourite for the job and could be unveiled as their new boss as early as Thursday.
