Former Birmingham boss Gary Rowett linked with managerless Hull

Premier League managers are falling like flies at the moment after Mike Phelan tonight (Tuesday) became the third top-flight boss to suffer the sack in under two weeks - Alan Pardew and Bob Bradley being the other two - following Hull City's decision to pull the plug on their partnership after five months.

Hull's position at the foot of table, and three points adrift of safety, isn't an ideal scenario for any incoming manager, but despite the club's on-and-off field problems, they're unlikely to be short of suitors.

One potential replacement for Phelan is the out-of-work Gary Rowett who has emerged as the early odds-on favourite for the job with all bookmakers (best-priced 4/6 with Paddy Power).

Rowett managed Birmingham City up until three weeks ago, when out-of-the-blue he was sent packing, a decision which puzzled many.

The 42-year-old, one of the most highly-rated young British managers on the circuit, has unsurprisingly since been linked with a number of clubs, including Hull's relegation rivals Crystal Palace and Swansea, who have now both found gaffers in Sam Allardyce and Paul Clement respectively.

However, could Rowett be on the cusp of returning to the dugout with Hull? It seems a real possibility if the heavy speculation is to be believed.

Meanwhile, other names in the betting include the Job Centre duo of Alan Pardew and Roy Hodgson, plus Reading boss Jaap Stam, while Sergei Rebrov of Dynamo Kyiv is a surprise addition to the market.

Stay tuned.
