Odds have shortened on Lee Clark being named the next Birmingham City manager amid reports he is due for more talks with the club.
Clark has been the bookmakers' favourite for the St Andrew's hotseat since Chris Hughton's departure, and reports claim the ex-Huddersfield boss has been invited to a second round of talks with chairman Peter Pannu this week.
Bookmakers see the former Newcastle midfielder as the stand out favourite for the role, with Skybet making him 8/15 to take over at 8am on June 20. Former Hull City boss Phil Brown is considered the next most likely, at 4/1, while former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane - currently working for ITV covering Euro 2012 - is at 6/1.
Odds on Alan Curbishley taking over have lengthened significantly since he appeared to distance himself from the Blues position.
Clark, aged 39, was surprisingly sacked by Huddersfield in February with chairman Dean Hoyle saying he had "lost faith" in his ability to secure automatic promotion from League One.
Blues fans on message boards have been debating whether Clark's style of football is right for the club, but he appears the most likely candidate to replace Hughton, who left to manager Premier League Norwich City after a successful year at St Andrew's.
