Mick McCarthy cut in the betting to become the Next Aston Villa Manager

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy has been linked with a move to managerless Aston Villa. The 57-year-old can now be found as short as 12/5 (Sky Bet) in the betting after emerging as the second favourite behind the 6/4 frontrunner Nigel Pearson.

In recent weeks McCarthy's future with The Tractor Boys has been called into question after the club's play-off hopes took a big hit following a rocky run of form. The Blues have suffered six defeats from their last 13 Championship matches, while they're without a win in three, leaving them seven point adrift of the top-6 with just six matches remaining.

Aston Villa, whose whopping 28-year stay in the top-flight is all but over, will no doubt be tempted by the experienced McCarthy, who has led both Sunderland and Wolves up to the Premier League - both as Champions - while Ipswich lost out in the play-offs last term.

If McCarthy fails to lead Ipswich to the Premier League this season - 100/1 with Bet Victor - both parties may decide that the time is right to split, although it's worth noting that his contract at Portman Road doesn't expire until the summer of 2018.

Meanwhile, it's the out-of-work Pearson who remains at the summit of the market, while Hull's Steve Bruce, David Moyes, and Burnley boss Sean Dyche are also in the frame. Expect this one to run for some time...
