Odds crash on Sean Dyche making Leicester move amid major speculation

Sean Dyche's odds to become the next Leicester manager have dropped considerably with the owners reportedly set to make an offer.

Since sacking Craig Shakespeare yesterday, it has emerged that Dyche is reportedly at the top of the Leicester board's wish list. There have been reports today that the owners are preparing an offer for the Burnley man and that his seen his odds drop from 16/1 when the market opened yesterday to 5/1 this morning.

Dyche, 46, is considered one of the brightest managerial prospects in England and during his time at Burnley he has had picked up plenty of admirers. 

He was at the top of the betting markets for the Crystal Palace job in the summer before they decided to go for a more continental approach with Frank De Boer. 

Leicester would be a different proposition though as Dyche lives in Northampton splitting his time between there and Burnley, which would make Leicester a far easier choice from that point of view. 

The way Leicester play is also a lot more suited to Dyche's managerial philosophy, with the Foxes title winning season built on a counter attacking style backed up by an unbreakbale team spirit and determination, not unlike his Burnley side at the other end of the table. 

Sam Allardyce is also said to be interested in talking to Leicester and heads the market at 4/1, while Chris Coleman is also still in the frame at 6/1. Carlo Ancelotti and Alan Pardew remian without a club and are available at 12/1 and 14/ respectively.
