Bookies taking bets on Leeds United midfielder Alex Mowatt's next move

Alex Mowatt

Everton are considered favourites to sign Alex Mowatt.

Leeds United midfielder Alex Mowatt has certainly caught attention with his long range strikes for the club over the past month.

Mowatt netted two spectacular goals in wins over Cardiff and Huddersfield, with former Leeds ace Ian Harte telling Channel 5, his strike against the Terriers is one he would have been proud of.

Bookies SkyBet are ramping up speculation over Mowatt's future, by opening a market on where he will be playing after the January transfer window closes.

It is one of 16 markets they have open on specific players, with Charlie Austin of QPR the only other Championship player listed.

The good news for Leeds fans? It is judged most likely that he will remain at Elland Road after the transfer window, with a price of 1/5 listed.

Everton are considered his next most likely destination (6/1) followed by Newcastle United (12/1) and then Arsenal and Aston Villa (both 16/1).

Leeds do not have a contract situation to worry about as they do with Sam Byram, whose current deal expires at the end of this season. Mowatt's runs until June 2017.
