Former Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has been backed from 40/1 to 7/2 to take over at Everton within the last 24 hours.

The experienced Dutch boss has not worked since leaving United at the end of the 2015-16 campaign, in which he delivered the club's first FA Cup in 12 years.

Six months later, Van Gaal looked to be done with football for good when he announced his retirement for family reasons.

But after a flurry of bets this week, LVG's name is doing the rounds in the Everton Twittersphere - evoking a mixture of responses.

Everton have gone nearly a month without a permanent manager after sacking Van Gaal's one-time friend turned adversary, Ronald Koeman.
