Mark Hughes currently leads the football betting markets at odds of 4.00 and the former Wales manager will be looking to rebuild his reputation in the Premier League following his dismissal from QPR in November.
Hughes covers the remit of having experience in the top flight following spells with Blackburn Rovers, Manchester City, Fulham and QPR and Stoke’s increased transfer budget for 2013-2014 is expected to appeal to the Welsh coach.
Another manager in the frame is former Sunderland manager Martin O’Neill, who was rumoured to have been sounded out by Stoke chairman Peter Coates last month as the man to replace Tony Pulis.
It is unclear whether the Northern Irish manager will be looking to make a move back into management so soon after being sacked by the Black Cats, but the former Celtic boss does carry plenty of experience in the Premier League.
Elsewhere FA Cup winning manager Roberto Martinez is set to announce a decision on his future in the next 24 hours and although the highly-rated Spanish manager is expected to leave the DW Stadium, a move to Premier League rivals Everton seems more likely.
The likes of Roberto Di Matteo (8.00) and Rafa Benitez (11.00) are interesting propositions, but both managers are thought to be after more prestigious roles, with the latter currently linked with a move to Napoli following Walter Mazzari’s decision to leave the Italian club last week.
With an early appointment likely to be made, Martin O’Neill’s current availability makes the former Sunderland manager the best value bet to take over from Tony Pulis at the Britannia Stadium.
