Former Newcastle United midfielder Scott Parker has emerged as a surprise favourite to take over at Sunderland following the sacking of Michael Beale.

The 43-year-old has been out of work since leaving Club Brugge last season, where he won just two of his 12 games in charge. The former England international has been linked to a series of jobs in England and Scotland, he recently turned down the opportunity to join Aberdeen.

Parker is priced at 7/4 by some bookmakers, ahead of the likes of Frank Lampard (2/1), Will Still (3/1) and Paul Heckingbottom (7/2).

Should Parker take up the role as Black Cats boss, it would most likely be at the end of the season as Mike Dodds is expected to remain as caretaker manager until then.
