Bookmakers have slashed odds on John Terry being named the next manager of Derby County, making the former England international favourite. 

Terry has been cut from 7/1 in 6/4 to take over at the club, with some firms offering odds as short as 1/2.  

He overtakes previous favourite, Sam Allardyce, who has slid out to 4/1 in the market. Sky Bet are offering odds as short as 2/1. 

England’s all-time record scorer and current Derby player, Wayne Rooney, is available at 14/1 in the betting.  

Two recognised managers in Rafa Benitez (14/1) and Steve McClaren (16/1) follow next, with the latter drifting over the last few days.  

Leading football stats site,, revealed that Derby haven’t scored more than once in any of their 12 games

They’re also the lowest-scoring side in the Championship, scoring a paltry five goals this season.  

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “The next Derby manager market is quite something.  

“You’d be forgiven for thinking it was a Football Manager simulation, with the likes of John Terry and Wayne Rooney battling Rafa Benitez and Steve McClaren. 

Terry is now the clear favourite in the market, with money coming for the former Chelsea defender in the last hour.” 

Next Derby County Manager:

  • John Terry - 6/4
  • Sam Allardyce - 4/1
  • Eddie Howe - 10/1
  • Wayne Rooney - 14/1
  • Rafa Benitez - 14/1
  • Steve McClaren - 16/1
