Dean Smith is the early favourite to replace Steve Bruce as Aston Villa manager, according to our latest odds.
Bruce was dismissed this week after a miserable run of one win in 10 games.
Smith has impressed at Brentford on a very tight budget. He’s 2/1 to take over at Villa Park.
Paulo Fonseca and Thierry Henry are joint-second in the betting at 4/1.
Villa are 13th in the Championship and face Millwall away this weekend.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Dean Smith ticks a lot of boxes and at this stage, he’s the most popular pick with punters to replace Bruce.”
