Bilic Leaving Besiktas…To Join West Ham?

Slaven Bilic has confirmed he is leaving Besiktas, seemingly paving the way for a return to West Ham. He is 4/9 with William Hill to be named as the new Hammers boss after Allardyce was confirmed on Sunday as leaving the club.

David Moyes is the 9/2 second favourite to get the gig with Steve McClaren 8/1.

“Since the shouts for Allardyce to go started a couple of years ago, Slaven Bilic has seemingly been waiting for the job to come up,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “The fans love him and he loves them.”

Next permanent West Ham manager: 4/9 Slaven Bilic; 9/2 David Moyes; 8/1 Steve McClaren; 12/1 Roberto Di Matteo; 14/1 Rafa Benitez; 16/1 Harry Redknapp; 20/1 Marcelo Bielsa; 25/1 BAR
