Former Manchester United star Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has rapidly emerged as a red-hot favourite to become the next Aston Villa manager.

Solskjaer's odds plummeted on Thursday with bookmakers across the country, coming in to around 6-4 from 25-1 following Alex McLeish's sacking.

The 39-year-old coached United's reserves for two and a half years before joining Molde, the club where he played for two years prior to moving to Old Trafford, leading them to their first Norwegian league title in 100 years last October.
