The odds on Clarets boss Sean Dyche becoming the next manager of Crystal Palace have shortened dramatically.

One leading bookmaker cut Dyche's odds to a jaw-dropping 1/9 on to take over the reins at Selhurst Park.

The Burnley manager's odds had drifted earlier in the week, but Burnley fans were left stunned after the popular boss was re-instated as the hot favourite replacing former England boss Roy Hodgson at the head of the betting.

Palace finished just one point ahead of the Clarets in the Premier League last season, but the Turf boss has won many admirers by keeping Burnley in the top flight.
