Burnley next manager odds: Carvalhal, Rooney and Kompany in behind Wilder for Clarets job, Nuno and Benitez in the mix

CHRIS WILDER remains favourite for the Burnley job, according to bookmakers Betfair.

The 54-year-old is the frontrunner at 6/4 for the vacant position at Turf Moor ahead of Wayne Rooney, Rafa Benitez and Sam Allardyce.

Bodo/Glimt boss Kjetil Knutsen, Nuno Espirito Santo and Manchester City legend Vincent Kompany are also in contention at double-figure odds.

But those prices could soon collapse.

And that's because Wilder has started to drift in the betting after reassuring Middlesbrough supporters that he's "all in" at Riverside Stadium.

He said: "I've always been incredibly committed. I'm all in.

"I want to work in the Premier League, I want to work in the Premier League with Middlesbrough.

"My sole aim is to affect results and improve the football club, we've done that in a short space of time and I'm excited about the future."

The Clarets have enjoyed life in the post-Sean Dyche era.

They secured an unlikely point at the London Stadium before winning successive games against Southampton and Wolves at home.

Burnley are in 17th position, two points clear of Everton, who've played a game less.

Interim boss Mike Jackson, having taken seven points from a possible nine, looks set to remain in position for this weekend's trip to Watford.

However, The Athletic claim Burnley chairman Alan Pace has conducted interviews over the last few days, and is understood to have travelled to Europe.
