TIM Sherwood is the new bookmakers’ favourite for the head coach’s job at Newcastle United.
The odds on Sherwood succeeding Alan Pardew at St James’s Park have tumbled over the past 24 hours.
Sherwood is as short as evens with many bookies.
The 45-year-old, sacked as Tottenham Hotspur head coach last summer, is available.
Sherwood had been assisted by former Newcastle striker Les Ferdinand at White Hart Lane.
Frenchman Remi Garde – who left Olympique Lyonnais at the end of last season for “personal reasons” – is the second favourite at 2/1.
