Odds slashed on Everton manager

Sky Bet have slashed the odds on Everton manager David Moyes taking charge at Aston Villa. Moyes, whose Everton side lost to Villa at the weekend, is now the 11/4 favourite with Sky Bet to be named as Martin O'Neill's permanent replacement. The Toffees boss, who fits owner Randy Lerner's criteria for the next Villa Park chief, is in from 40/1 following huge support on Monday. Moyes has been at the Goodison Park helm since 2002 but punters now believe he could be on his way to the Midlands. Caretaker Villa manager Kevin MacDonald is 3/1 second-favourite, with former England boss Sven Goran Eriksson out to 9/2 (from 3/1). O'Neill walked away from the Villa job three weeks ago and the club are now stepping up the search for his successor. Villa announced on Sunday that they were looking for somebody with experience of managing in the Premier League, effectively ruling out MacDonald and several other potential candidates including USA coach Bob Bradley.
