Everton betting update: Clear favourite remains, Moyes return odds cut, Mourinho latest

Mourinho Dugout

Everton have sacked Roberto Martinez - who could replace him?

Everton announced on Thursday evening that manager Roberto Martinez has been sacked, with the search for a new manager starting now.

The Toffees picked up just six points from their last ten Premier League games under the Spaniard, and after a 3-0 defeat away to Sunderland last Wednesday, Martinez has gone after three years in charge.

David Unsworth and Joe Royle took charge against Norwich City on Sunday, but Everton will now be looking for a new boss for next season and beyond, with a host of names already linked.

With odds compiled by Oddschecker, here are some of today's biggest movers, featuring some huge names both out of work and currently in jobs...

Ronald Koeman: Southampton ended the season as the Premier League's form team, and two impressive finishes under Dutchman Koeman have triggered some interest in his services. Heavily linked with Everton since Martinez's departure, Koeman is now around 4/1 for the job despite Southampton being unlikely to let him leave for a club on a similar level to themselves.

David Moyes: Former Everton boss Moyes has been out of work since leaving Real Sociedad in November, and may look for a return to management this summer. The Scot, 53, spent over 11 years as Everton manager before leaving for Manchester United in the summer of 2013, making him unpopular in the eyes of some Everton fans. Down to 9/2 for the Toffees job this evening, Moyes could be in the running for a shock return to Goodison Park.

Mark Hughes: Stoke manager Hughes spent a short spell with Everton as a player, and has enjoyed a decent season with the Potters this term. The 52-year-old has rebuild his reputation since a poor spell at QPR, and could be in line for a big job again, having struggled at Manchester City. Welshman Hughes is down to around 12/1 for an Everton return this evening, but whether Stoke would let him go remains to be seen.

Jose Mourinho: There were some suggestions over the weekend that Everton had a realistic shot at landing Mourinho, who has been out of work since leaving Chelsea in December. The Portuguese boss, who has won three Premier League titles as well as the Champions League twice, may see Everton as a step down, but with few big jobs available, he could be tempted with a big transfer budget - and he's now just 6/1 for the Everton job.

The favourite - Frank de Boer: Unsurprisingly the favourite, De Boer has left Ajax after two years without the title, coming off four Eredivisie crowns in a row. The Dutchman, 45, has worked with young players at Ajax and has proven himself in the Netherlands, but many want to see him show his ability away from Amsterdam. Once odds-on, De Boer has drifted out to around 6/4 now, but remains the clear favourite for the job.
