Albion boss Gus Poyet is among the bookies’ fancies to be the next manager of Stoke City.

Reports are emerging this after that Tony Pulis has parted company with the Potters although they have not yet been confirmed by the club.

Roberto di Matteo has been made favourite to take over should Pulis go with a best price of 4/1.

Mark Hughes is second favourite with most bookies but both Coral and William Hill have Poyet second in the betting.

Poyet is as short as 5/1 with Coral but punters can get up to 10/1 elsewhere.

The Uruguayan is currently suspended by the Seagulls and is expected to leave the club during the close season.
