Surprisingly, some oddsmakers have former Burnley midfielder Joey Barton as favourite to land the role.

The current manager of League Two side Bristol Rovers made 14 appearances as a player for the Clarets in 2017.

Barton's stock has risen since guiding Bristol Rovers to an automatic promotion to League One.

And the success could mean the former City player is instead focussing on another season in charge.
