Stoke City next manager odds: Nathan Jones favourite to replace Gary Rowett

David Moyes, Nathan Jones, Derek McInnes and Sam Allardyce all in the running for Stoke

Luton Town manager Nathan Jones finds himself as the current favourite to replace the sacked Gary Rowett at Stoke City.

Rowett, who was only appointed by the Potters in May 2018, was axed on Tuesday after a disappointing start to life in the Sky Bet Championship, following their relegation from the Premier League.

They sit 14th in the table after just eight wins in 26 league outijngs and they were held to a 1-1 draw by League One Shrewsbury in the FA Cup third round on Saturday.

With odds from Sky Bet, we take a look at the market for his replacement...


Next permanent Stoke manager odds

Nathan Jones - 1/2

Luton boss Nathan Jones
Luton boss Nathan Jones

The 45-year-old has impressed since being appointed as Luton manager in 2016, guiding them to promotion to Sky Bet League One in 2017/18.

The Hatters play a good style of football and impressive form over Christmas has seen them surge up to second in the third tier and Jones is a key factor behind that.

David Moyes - 4/1

David Moyes
David Moyes had a short-term spell at West Ham in 2017/18

Moyes has been heavily backed to return to management at Stoke and is the early favourite for the job.

The Scot established himself as one of the Premier League's top managers during his 11-year spell at Everton and his stock remains high despite unsuccessful spells at Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland.

He has been out of work since steering West Ham to Premier League safety last season.

Slavisa Jokanovic - 9/1

Slavisa Jokanovic: Tipped to take over at Reading
Slavisa Jokanovic: Left Fulham in November

Former Watford and Fulham boss Jokanovic is among the early favourites to succeed Rowett and with good reason.

The Serbian is the only overseas manager to win two promotions to the Premier League (with Watford 2015 and Fulham in 2018) and has won plenty of admirers for his attractive style of play - the kind Stoke fans have been crying out for this season.

Sam Allardyce - 10/1

Sam Allardyce was most recently in charge at Everton
Sam Allardyce: Most recently in charge at Everton

Allardyce's name is always high on the bookmakers' list when a managerial vacancy comes around.

He too has twice won promotion to the top flight (with Bolton in 2001 and West Ham in 2012) and would no doubt resolve the current malaise at the club.But his pragmatic approach has proved divisive in the past and could count against him.

Derek McInnes - 16/1

Derek McInnes
Derek McInnes

McInnes turned down the chance to take charge of Sunderland and Rangers in 2017 and instead chose to stay at Aberdeen, who he has turned into force again in the Ladbrokes Premiership.The 47-year-old Scot has guided the Dons to three successive second-placed finishes behind Celtic and has also won promotion to the top flight with St Johnstone.

Best of the rest

Lee Johnson: The 37-year-old's Bristol City are six points off the play-offs
Lee Johnson: Currently at Bristol City
  • Martin O'Neill - 8/1
  • Carlos Carvalhal - 14/1
  • Lee Johnson - 20/1
  • Mark Warburton - 22/1
  • Danny Cowley - 25/1
  • Alan Pardew - 25/1
