Roy Keane's odds are shortening all the time as the race to become Reading's next manager hots up.

After the sacking of Jose Gomes earlier this week, many have been tipped for the job.

Mark Hughes was reported to be in talks about the job earlier this week and was odds-on for the job on Wednesday.

Yesterday, Mark Bowen was as short as 1/3 to be appointed but that has cooled.

Now, Keane has emerged as a real possibility to become the next Royals boss and is as low as 4/1 with Skybet, with Hughes 5/4 and Bowen 9/4.
