ARSENAL legend Patrick Vieira has stormed into contention for the Bournemouth job.

The Cherries are still without a manager having axed Jason Tindall after six months in charge at the Vitality Stadium.

Patrick Vieira is available at 4/1 to be Bournemouth's next permanent manager

Jonathan Woodgate was appointed as interim boss and started brightly with victories over Birmingham and Premier League side Burnley in the FA Cup.

But that's no guarantee of landing the role on a full-time basis.

And there's plenty of competition with the Cherries set to interview several candidates over Zoom this week.

Aston Villa assistant John Terry is the leading contender at 9/4 to secure his first role in management.

He's closely followed by former Huddersfield boss David Wagner at 7/2.

Wagner has Championship experience having guided the Terriers to promotion during the 2016-17 season and remains a free agent.

Bournemouth next manager odds - Coral

John Terry - 9/4
David Wagner - 7/2
Patrick Vieira - 4/1
Frank Lampard - 4/1
Nigel Pearson - 5/1
Jonathan Woodgate - 6/1
Tony Pulis - 12/1
Harry Redknapp - 20/1
Paul Cook - 20/1

Vieira, 44, is third in the betting market at 4/1 with bookmakers Coral.

The Frenchman guided New York City FC to their first-ever appearance in the MLS play-offs during his debut season before securing a fifth-place finish with Nice.

Former Derby and Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is available at 4/1 with Nigel Pearson further back at 5s.

Woodgate, who helped the Championship club end a miserable four-game losing run, is priced at 6/1.

It's a double-figure 12/1 chance that Tony Pulis arrives on the south coast, while Harry Redknapp and Paul Cook are both locked together at the back of the field at 20/1.

Odds on Redknapp taking the vacant role could soon shorten.

The 73-year-old, who started his managerial career at Bournemouth in 1983, has been brought in by Woodgate to keep an 'eye on things' around the place.

Redknapp told Sky Sports: "Jonathan Woodgate played under me at Spurs and he's a great lad.

"He's asked me to come in for a few days and watch them train.

"Just to be around the place for a few days, help keep my eye on things for him."
