Rafa Benitez favourite for West Ham switch
Newcastle manager third in two days to trade at odds-on
The Hammers have been linked with moves for Shakhtar Donetsk manager Paulo Fonseca, who reportedly held talks with West Ham co-owner David Sullivan, and Manuel Pellegrini, the head coach of Chinese Super League side Hebei China Fortune.
Pellegrini touched 1-2 with Hills on Tuesday and remained prominent in the betting on Wednesday.
But Fonseca eased from a low of 4-6 to 6-1 with BoyleSports after it was reported that he had agreed a contract extension with Shakhtar.
Benitez became the third manager in two days to trade at odds-on to replace Moyes, shortening to 4-5 with Sky Bet, but he would have to negotiate an exit from Newcastle, where he has been manager since March 2016.
