According to Sky Bet, former Leeds United head coach Garry Monk is odds on to be named the next manager at Hull City. The ex-Swansea player and manager is available at 4/6 at the time of writing, putting him after of several other out of work managers said to be in the race.

Monk is on the lookout for a new job after surprisingly deciding to end his one-year stay at Elland Road, citing a disagreement over contract length as one of the reasons for his departure. Given the impact he had at the club last season, his name has rightly been mentioned in being linked with a few vacancies over the last few weeks.

He has already been the odds on favourite to take over at Crystal Palace and Middlesbrough since his exit from Leeds, but Hull is the latest club he has been heavily linked with. Geographically it is not too far from Leeds, so logically it would be an easy move for him. The ownership situation at the KCOM Stadium perhaps is slightly off-putting. The club are still believed to be up for sale, with no sale looking likely at any stage. The Tigers went through a few managers last season. They were promoted out of the Championship two years ago under Steve Bruce, who would leave shortly before the following season began.

Leonid Slutsky, the former CSKA Moscow and Russian national team head coach, is another name high in the betting for the job in Humberside. Paul Lambert, who left his role at Wolverhampton Wanderers, as well as ex-Sheffield United, Scunthorpe United and Southampton boss Nigel Adkins has been mentioned too. David Moyes completes the list of failure short priced players on the list, which can be seen on the Sky Bet website HERE.
