Steve Bruce is among the favourites on the Premier League Sack Race betting market and it could be that Newcastle United soon make the decision to part company with this manager despite the fact that the team enjoyed a resurgence in the top-flight which meant they were safe for the 2020-21 season.

It’s fair to say that the majority of supporters would still prefer someone else to be in charge at St James’ Park and there’s a distinct possibility that Mike Ashley will look to bring in someone to shake things up, despite Bruce’s declaration that he wants to be manager of Newcastle next season and beyond.

A number of betting sites are now speculating over the future of Steve Bruce at Newcastle and they have re-opened their Next Newcastle United Manager betting market, with Graeme Jones and Chris Wilder among the favourites.

There are likely to be plenty of other interested parties in the role of reviving the fortunes of the north-east club, although much might depend on any potential takeover considering that Rafael Benitez was unwilling to work with Ashley any longer, with other leading lights likely to need assurances in terms of player budgets.

Could Graeme Jones Be Promoted From Within?

Graeme Jones joined the Newcastle United coaching staff at the end of January, with the Gateshead-born coach having already worked with a number of other high-profile clubs including Wigan Athletic and Swansea City. His installation was apparently not done at the behest of Steve Bruce, although the pair have been working together since that point.

Jones also answered his country's call this summer to join Gareth Southgate's England Euro 2020 squad set-up, with the coach potentially the natural successor to Bruce and it's always possible that Mike Ashley might promote the 51-year-old whose arrival coincided with an upturn in form for United last term.

Indeed, Jones' stock could be remarkably high after England's bright performances at the 2020 European Championship, with Paddy Power and betfair now making him favourite to lead a team with whom he's familiar after growing up on Tyneside.

Chris Wilder Among Newcastle United Manager Favourites

Chris Wilder made a silk purse out of a sow’s ear when it came to the 2019/20 season in charge of Sheffield United, even if he was unable to repeat the same trick this time around, with the 53-year-old recently parting company with the Yorkshire club after completely transforming the fortunes of an outfit who were sitting in League One when he originally took charge.

Wilder will surely not be short of offers when it comes to his next managerial role and many betting apps have the former Northampton and Oxford manager as one of their betting favourites to replace Bruce at St James’ Park, with this potentially being a role which would interest a manager who would be given a better squad than the one he had at Bramall Lane.

It would be interesting to see whether Wilder would be prepared to work with owner Mike Ashley considering that the latter has reluctantly invested in players over the past few years, with the Sports Direct owner having had the club up for sale which means that there is seemingly no long-term plan in place at the Tyneside club.

Howe Also Trading at Single Figure Odds for Newcastle Job

Eddie Howe has been out of work since leaving Bournemouth at the end of the 2019/20 season, with the 43-year-old having been unable to keep the Cherries afloat in the Premier League and he was quick to fall on his sword at the Vitality Stadium and take a break from football management following his successful stint at the Dorset club.

It has now been over a year since Howe held this coaching position and perhaps Newcastle will offer him an opportunity to get back into Premier League management, although his odds were drifting on this market when he was being linked with the Celtic manager's position until he decided against the role.

There’s something of a Bournemouth connection already at St James’ Park when you consider that Matt Ritchie, Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser are all on the books at Newcastle and it might be that Howe is attracted to the possibility of resurrecting this massive English football club and steering them further up the table.

Benitez Unlikely to Take Charge After Everton Switch

The supporters would have loved to have heard the news that Rafael Benitez is coming back to the Toon and some bookies have the Spaniard among the favourites to take charge of the Magpies for a second occasion. However, it’s tough to see how the current Everton boss would take charge considering he has taken the reins at Goodison Park.

Everton supporters certainly don't seem encouraged by the prospect of Benitez in charge although the former Liverpool manager is planning on a long stint on Merseyside and it means that the prospect of him returning to St James' Park are remote.

It also appears that Benitez and Mike Ashley regularly failed to see eye-to-eye when it came to investing in new players and the direction of the club, with the former only prepared to take on a new role providing that there’s a vision for what the team can potentially achieve and ideally that would be winning silverware.

Frank Lampard Among Favourites for Newcastle Gig

It remains to be seen whether Frank Lampard will ever return to football management after his recent stints with Derby County and Chelsea, with the former England international unable to match the expectation level of Roman Abramovich at Stamford Bridge and he was recently replaced by Thomas Tuchel at the west London club, with Lampard now taking stock of the situation.

It’s hard to describe Lampard as a bad manager considering that he did pretty well with Derby during his only season at Pride Park and steered them into the play-offs. This was partly due to the loan acquisitions of Fikayo Tomori, Harry Wilson and Mason Mount, the latter of whom is now a Chelsea and England regular.

However, Lampard is among the betting favourites to become the next manager of Newcastle United and he’s previously demonstrated that he’s not short of ambition, while expectation levels will be a good deal lower at the Tyneside club compared to his short time at Chelsea, with the manager still young and looking for the next step of his career.

Could Roberto Martinez Be a Surprise Appointment?

One notable name on the Next Newcastle United Manager betting market is Roberto Martinez who continues to fare well as the manager of Belgium and led the Red Devils to the quarter final of the Euro 2020 tournament after previously making the semi-final stage of the 2018 World Cup.

However, Martinez has always been a young international manager and it will be interesting to see whether he fancies returning to domestic management instead, with the Spaniard having plenty of experience when it comes to managing British football clubs considering that he’s taking charge of Wigan, Swansea and Everton.

Indeed, he has a strong connection to Graeme Jones who is the assistant manager to Steve Bruce right now and it doesn’t take a flight of fancy to join the dots and come up with the possibility that we’ll see Martinez return to the Premier League and take on the massive task of trying to restore the fortunes of Newcastle United. Incidentally, he has also been touted as a possible candidate to be the next manager of Barcelona.
