Leeds United job betting update: Good news for Steve Evans?

Leeds United 2

Steve Evans' price has been cut to stay as head coach.

Could positive news be on the horizon for Steve Evans?

The latest odds from bookmakers SkyBet suggest the Scotsman has a strong chance of being retained as Leeds United boss.

He is now rated at just 3/1 to be head coach on the first day of next season, having entered the week at 10/1.

Evans is now considered more likely to be Leeds coach than Oldham's John Sheridan, who was 1/6 on last week and has now risen to 11/1.

Crotone boss Ivan Juric was 7/4 earlier this week but he is now 4/1 behind Evans.

Only one manager is considered more likely to land the role, MK Dons boss Karl Robinson who remains the favourite, priced at 8/11 on, but Evans is closing in.

The drop in price could be down to a lack of information emerging from the board meeting held on Thursday, with the mantra 'no news is good news' applying, but it could also be down to Evans' attitude.

He told the Yorkshire Evening Post this week he is diligently planning for next season, scouting players and simply waiting for the go ahead from owner Massimo Cellino.
