Marco Silva linked with Hull

Both the betting and reports indicated that Gary Rowett would be the manager to succeed the axed Mike Phelan at Premier League strugglers Hull City, however a new boss has stormed into the mix: Marco Silva.

Silva was priced at 12/1 first thing this morning (Wednesday) but is now as short as 1/5 (Sky Bet) to manage in England for the first time - click here for the Next Hull Manager Market.

Silva, who was linked with Wolves back in October, has been out-of-work since leaving Greek giants Olympiakos back in June, after just one season at the helm.

The Portuguese coach hoisted the Greek Super League title with the Red-Whites, memorably leading the club to 17 straight wins in the process.

Prior to his spell in Greece the 39-year-old managed in his homeland with Sporting during the 2014/15 season (winning the Taca de Portugal), and Estoril for three campaigns (2011-2014), during which he steered the club up to the Primeira Liga, and then into the Europa League.

Silva's sudden surge in the betting means that Birmingham boss Rowett is now at 7/2, while the likes of Jaap Stam, Alan Pardew, Nigel Pearson, and Roy Hodgson have all drifted.
