Michael O’Neill has emerged as the early favourite to take over at West Bromwich Albion.

The Northern Ireland mangher is 4/1 to replace Tony Pulis. West Brom sacked Pulis on Monday after a run of just two wins in 21 league games.

O’Neill has never managed in English club football before but he’s done a great job in charge of Northern Ireland.

He led them to their first tournament in 30 years at Euro 2016. He also took them to the World Cup play-offs this year, though Switzerland scored a controversial penalty to go through.

Alan Pardew is also in the frame at 5/1, followed by Derek McInnes at 6/1 and Sam Allardyce is 8/1.

Whoever comes in will need to turn West Brom’s form around quickly. They’re currently 17th, one point above the drop zone.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “In this situation you’d normally turn to Pulis to rescue your team from the drop, but instead the early betting suggests Michael O’Neill could ditch his country for club football.”
