Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic has emerged as the new favourite for the vacant manager role at recently relegated Middlesbrough.

Reports yesterday had Leeds United boss Garry Monk as odds on favourite, but as the72 reported today, the Leeds man is currently negotiating a new contract at Elland Road.

Because of this, his odds have significantly dropped and Jokanovic has emerged as 7/2 favourites according to Sky Bet Odds.

The Serbian manager has also been linked with the Sunderland manager role, following the resignation of David Moyes.

Both Middlesbrough and Sunderland were relegated from the Premier League following disappointing campaigns, and will play Sky Bet Championship football next season.

Slavisa Jokanovic enjoyed a wonderful season with Fulham, leading them to sixth place in the Sky Bet Championship.

However, their season ended earlier than they would have liked. Fulham played Reading over two legs in the Championship Play-Off semi final, losing 2-1 on aggregate and missing out on a place at Wembley.

Despite that, Fulham fans are desperate for their manager to remain at Craven Cottage.

Despite acknowledgement that Jokanovic deserves to be linked with a number of clubs, this fan hopes that he remains at the club.

This football fan thinks that Jokanovic would do a brilliant job if he were to move to Middlesbrough.

And this Middlesbrough fan says that he would be over the moon if the current Fulham boss is appointed at his club.
