Les Ferdinand: Former England striker linked with Swindon vacancy

The Tottenham coach reportedly heads a strong list of candidates for the position, which was vacated by Kevin MacDonald following a disappointing five-month spell in charge.

The job would represent a first managerial role for Ferdinand, who joined the Spurs coaching staff in 2008 along with Tim Sherwood, who is also considered a contender.

Sherwood is, however, rated a 20/1 chance to take the reins at the League One club, with Paul Hartley the 2/1 second favourite followed by former England Under-21 manager Stuart Pearce (9/1).

Martin Ling recently declared his interest in the job but is a 33/1 outsider having insinuated that the role may have already been filled.

Sky Bet Football Trader Chris Spicer said: "We saw a sudden surge of bets on Ferdinand taking the post on Thursday morning, prompting us to cut his price from 4/1 to 5/4, while Hartley has also been well supported in the market.

"We'd expect a appointment to be made fairly soon with pre-season well under way and it they money implies that it's a decision between Ferdinand and Sherwood."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
