Claudio Ranieri is the early favourite to become the next Watford manager, according to the latest odds.
Walter Mazzarri will leave the Hornets at the end of the season, leaving Watford requiring a ninth coach since Gino Pozzo took over in 2012.
The former Leicester boss is the clear favourite for the job.
Ex-Crystal Palace gaffer Alan Pardew had been installed as second favourite at 8/1.
But early money for Hull City coach Marco Silva has seen the Portuguese move from 9/1 into 5s.
A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “Mazzarri is the latest to be stung by the Hornets board, and the early odds suggest Ranieri is set for a rapid return to the Premier League.”
