With Warnock's exit expected this summer, the online bookmaker already had a market available on his successor, with the former Reading boss heading the market.

Confirmation of the 64-year-old's departure was followed by early support for McDermott, who is now as short as 11/10.

Sky Bet Football Trader Chris Spicer said: "McDermott had already been touted as the ideal replacement, having led Reading to promotion last season."

Gus Poyet is second favourite at 5/1, Owen Coyle 9/1 and former Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill 12/1.
