Silva odds-on for Crystal Palace job after leaving Hull

Marco Silva is odds-on to take over as Crystal Palace manager after deciding to leave Hull City.

Silva is quitting the relegated Tigers with immediate effect after triggering a clause in his contract.

He made a big impact at Hull but was unable to keep them in the Premier League.

He is now being heavily backed to take over at Palace, who are looking for a new manager following Sam Allardyce’s resignation.

Charlie McCann, a spokesman for BetVictor, said: “Silva came up short in his bid to keep Hull City in the Premier League but he certainly did his reputation no harm during his stay at the KCOM and he would look an excellent fit for the Eagles.

“Palace have been a good side on the road for a number of season’s now and if Silva were appointed his record suggests he could turn Selhurst Park into a fortress.”

Odds on Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic, who was as short as 6/1 at one stage, taking over at Selhurst Park have widened.

Wales manager and former Palace defender Chris Coleman has also been touted as a contender for the job, as has former Chelsea and Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri.
