David Moyes is the bookies' favourite to be named as West Ham United's 16th full-time manager - despite his short-term contract with the club having expired.

Moyes revealed after Sunday's defeat of Everton that his temporary contract with the club expired at midnight on Sunday, meaning the club are technically without a manager currently.

However according to the bookmakers, the 55-year-old Scot is hot favourite to be offered a permanent contract having steered the Hammers to Premier League safety.

Closely following Moyes is the recently-appointed Dutch international coach Ronald Koeman, who has previously enjoyed spells in the Premier League with Southampton and Everton.

Meanwhile the likes of Carlo Ancelotti, Sean Dyche and recently-fired Sunderland boss Chris Coleman are also highly-priced.

The leading candidates, according to Betfair, are as follows:

1. David Moyes: 1/3
2. Ronald Koeman: 4/1
3. Carlo Ancelotti: 6/1
4. Marcelo Bielsa: 8/1
5. Sean Dyche: 8/1

Whilst Unibet list the following...

1. David Moyes: 1/99
2. Ronald Koeman: 8/1
3. Alan Pardew: 10/1
4. Carlo Ancelotti: 20/1
5. Chris Coleman: 20/1
