Marcelo Bielsa is the favourite to be the next Southampton manager after Nathan Jones was sacked.

Saints sit bottom of the Premier League after a 2-1 loss to Wolves on Saturday.

And now the club is searching for a third manager this season with Jones dismissed just eight Premier League games into his tenure after succeeding Ralph Hasenhüttl in November.

Bielsa, last in charge of Leeds, is the early front-runner with the bookmakers, having also held talks recently with Everton about succeeding Frank Lampard.

The Toffees could not convince the Argentine though, with Sean Dyche the eventual choice at Goodison Park.
