1 of 1

Fleetwood are 9-1 with Betway to be promoted from Sky Bet League One in the 2018-19 season after confirming the appointment of Joey Barton as their new manager.

Barton, who will take charge officially in June after completing his ban for breaching the FA's betting rules, said: "My first job in management was always going to be a big decision and I'm delighted. I'm joining a club with big ambitions."

The Cod Army, who lie 14th in League One this season, are 20-1 with bet365 to win the third-division title next term while Betway make the 35-year-old Barton 8-1 to play for the first team in 2018-19.

Betway also offer 3-1 that the former Manchester City, Newcastle and Burnley midfielder sees out his initial three-year contract at Highbury and 4-6 that Barton is sent to the stands during his first season in charge.

The firm go 4-1 that Fleetwood are relegated next season and 6-4 that Barton fails to see out the season as manager.

Fleetwood lost in the League One playoffs in 2016-17 and parted company with Uwe Rosler after a run of eight straight defeats at the start of this year. Rosler's successor John Sheridan will leave at the end of the current campaign.
