Updated Leeds United boss betting odds ahead of crunch board meeting

Massimo Cellino 1

Who will be the next Leeds United boss?

Wednesday is a crucial day for Leeds United's 2016/17 season, with a board meeting scheduled which could decide the club's next head coach.

Steve Evans' fate remains in doubt, with owner Massimo Cellino setting his intentions out earlier this month, while keeping everybody guessing.

He told The Mirror: "I'm calling a board meeting for the 18th of May to plan for next season."

While the meeting is to be held imminently, it is also unclear when or how soon there will be any announcement regarding the club's subsequent plans.

One of the few clues which can be taken is from the bookmakers, and ahead of the crucial meeting, this is how the market on the next Leeds United head coach stands, according to SkyBet:

Karl Robinson 2/5; John Sheridan 5/2; Steve Evans 7/1; Quique Flores 10/1; Walter Zenga 14/1, Dougie Freedman 16/1; Beppe Iachini 18/1.

Oldham Athletic boss and former Leeds midfielder John Sheridan was once as low as 1/6, while Steve Evans has climbed, having been down to 14/1 at one stage.

Now former Watford boss Quique Flores is a contender, but the bookies favourite remains MK Dons manager Karl Robinson.

Soon hopefully action will be taken one way or another, while a new contender could also suddenly emerge.
