Moyes favourite to replace Redknapp in Tottenham hotseat ahead of Martinez, Benitez & Capello

The Everton manager, who has proven his Premier League mettle with a decade-long stint at Goodison Park, is odds on with William Hill to take over at White Hart Lane
Everton boss David Moyes is the favourite to replace Harry Redknapp as Tottenham manager.

The outgoing Spurs coach was sacked over a contract dispute in the early hours of Thursday morning and Moyes was immediately installed as the favourite by William Hill.

The bookies have the veteran Premier League manager at 10/11 (1.91) to leave Goodison Park for White Hart Lane this summer.

Considering Moyes has plenty of goodwill going his way due to his achievements on a limited budget for a decade with the Toffees, those odds are worth pouncing on.

However, those who believe the Spurs hotseat would pile too much pressure on the 49-year-old coach might want to look no further than Fabio Capello.

The Italian has vast experience at the top level and has already confirmed his desire to manage in England in the near future.

Capello is fifth favourite with William Hill as of Thursday afternoon at 7/1 (8.00) but his odds could plummet or rocket should he be cornered and questioned on the topic at Euro 2012 where he has been spotted in the crowd on numerous occasions.

Roberto Martinez (pictured right) continues his recent record of being among the top contenders for every Premier League job going, and is 7/4 (2.75) to replace Redknapp.

The Spaniard could prove to be a favourite for Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, whose side played attractive football when in-form last season which is something the current Wigan Athletic boss strives for.

Jurgen Klinsmann has continued to gain admirers for his managerial work - first by forming the foundation of the current Germany side during the 2006 World Cup, and now he is winning plaudits for his work as USA head coach.

The former Spurs striker is still regarded as an idol for his spell at White Hart Lane and, at 6/1 (7.00), could prove a popular choice among Lilywhites supporters.

Ex-Liverpool coach Rafael Benitez is another tip that carries plenty of value at 6/1 (7.00) because the Spaniard has expressed his will to work in England again, and he has solid experience at the top level of European football.

Another Spaniard who is currently unemployed is Pep Guardiola, and the former Barcelona coach is 16/1 (17.00) with William Hill.

Punters are advised against backing him to succeed Redknapp however - if Roman Abramovich cannot persuade him to abandon his year hiatus for Champions League football with Chelsea, Levy will have his work cut out doing so.

A more realistic bet would be to put money on Andre Villas-Boas at 10/1 (11.00), who would not be a big risk considering he is curerently out of contract.

Not only are these odds reasonable considering he won the Europa League a little over a year ago with Porto, but his recent spell at Stamford Bridge - although considered a failure - means his knowledge of English football remains high.

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew sits at 16/1 (17.00), as does Gus Poyet, whose Brighton & Hove Albion side soundly beat the Tyneside club in the FA Cup fourth-round last season.

Further back in the pecking order are Laurent Blanc at 25/1 (26.00) who is currently managing the France national side at Euro 2012, and his French compatriot Didier Deschamps at 25/1 (26.00) too.

25/1 (26.00) options to avoid include Owen Coyle as he just relegated Bolton Wanderers and, despite the sentimentality value, Martin Jol as the Fulham boss seems settled at Craven Cottage despite having a good relationship with the fans because of his stint in north London.

One for the real outsiders is Croatia coach Slaven Bilic, who has already confirmed Euro 2012 will be his last tournament with. His appointment could just help persuade Luka Modric to see out his contract too.

The former Premier League player would be a cheap option and, at 25/1 (26.00), offers top value considering there would be no compensation to sort out.

Next Tottenham manager:

David Moyes: 10/11 (1.91)
Roberto Martinez: 7/4 (2.75)
Rafael Benitez: 6/1 (7.00)
Jurgen Klinsmann: 6/1 (7.00)
Fabio Capello: 7/1 (8.00)
