Under-fire Tottenham Hotspur boss Tim Sherwood is the bookmakers' favourite to take over the reins at Brighton & Hove Albion this summer.

The south coast club have recently parted company with former manager Oscar Garcia following their play-off defeat to Derby and Sherwood is now the favourite to take charge.

Although Sherwood’s current deal doesn’t run out until the end of next season, reports from within the club have stated he will be relieved of his managerial duties this week.

Malky Mackay and Dennis Bergkamp have also been linked with job.
