There are three Reading links in the running for the next Cardiff City management job.

The Bluebirds sacked Steve Morison on Sunday after defeat to Huddersfield Town meant it was just three wins from the opening 10 of the campaign.

This follows Stoke City and the Terriers sacking their own managers so far this season- the Yorkshire outfit still yet to decide on a replacement.

Reports suggest that the Welsh outfit will be giving interim boss Mark Hudson the chance to prove himself before bringing in an external appointment, but the bookies still have former Reading bosses with short odds.

Luton Town manager Nathan Jones; former Cardiff captain Sol Bamba and Chelsea Under-21 boss Jody Morris are all at under 10/1 on Sky Bet- as is former Reading manager Veljko Paunovic.

The Serbian took the Royals to the brink of the play-offs in 2020/21, but a drop-off last season saw him replaced by Paul Ince in February.

Ince is also thought to be one of the front-runners for the job, with reports claiming the former England captain is being weighed up.

Since taking over as permanent boss in the summer, Ince has proved doubters wrong so far and has the team sat in third.

At 25/1, he is joined by iconic manager Neil Warnock, who led the Bluebirds to the Premier League in 2018, and former QPR boss Mark Warburton.

Nigel Adkins, who took charge of Reading between 2013 and 2014, is available at 50/1.
