Former Reading manager Brian McDermott tops the bookies' contenders' list for the vacancy at Leeds United.

Former Reading boss Brian McDermott has emerged as the bookmakers' favourite to be named the next Leeds United manager.

The vacancy opened up last night when Neil Warnock stepped down from his role following the Whites' 2-1 defeat to Derby County.

McDermott, who was sacked by Reading last month, has been placed at the top of the contenders' list as 6-4 favourite, while Brighton & Hove Albion boss Gus Poyet is second favourite at 5-1.

Martin O'Neill is also without a club following his dismissal at Sunderland.
