Rafa Benitez installed as second-favourite for job at Newcastle United's Premier League rivals
Slaven Bilic was sacked as manager of West Brom this afternoon.
Interestingly, BetVictor are pricing former Newcastle United and Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce as 1/6 favourite to be named the next permanent manager.
The 66-year-old is ahead of second favourites Eddie Howe and another former Magpies boss Rafa Benitez at 12/1.
Alex Neil is priced at 16/1 alongside Tony Pulis and Nigel Pearson among others.
In the summer of 2019, Benítez was appointed manager of Chinese Super League side Dalian Professional, signing a two-and-a-half-year deal.
