Mark Hughes has emerged as the favourite to fill the Southampton hotseat after Mauricio Pellegrino parted company with the south coast club on Monday.

Pellegrino's eight-month reign came top an end with the Saints just one point above the relegation zone with eight games left. They are 15-8 to go down.

Hughes finished his playing career at Southampton, making 52 appearances between 1998 and 2000, but could face competition from  Marco Silva, who was dismissed by Watford in January.

Silva was the initial favourite to replace Pellegrino but was quickly usurped by Hughes, who shortened to odds-on.

Hughes was a 4-7 chance at midday on Tuesday, with Silva 15-8 and Slaven Bilic 12-1. Ostersunds boss Graham Potter has been cut from 33-1 to 20-1 by Sky Bet.
