PremierLeague-News.Com - Sheffield United remain on the hunt for a long-term successor to Chris Wilder and a new favourite has emerged in the betting markets
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The bookies market for the new Sheffield United manager has changed once more as the Blades prepare for life back in the Championship. United have bided their time in finding Chris Wilder's replacement, with the club's relegation from the Premier League having been officially confirmed last month. Time has been on their side as they bid to appoint a man who will be tasked with leading the fight to return immediately to the top flight. In the wake of Wilder's departure, Michael Appleton was immediately installed as favourite to take over, before Paul Heckingbottom was handed the task of seeing the team through to the end of the season.

Former Fulham and Watford boss Slavisa Jokanovic was the frontrunner for some time and while Alexander Blessin had ousted him at the top of the odds list just last week, the Serb has now been installed once more as the favourite.
