Gus Poyet has replaced Roberto Di Matteo as the new bookies' favourite for the vacant Sunderland managers job, according to the Independent. 

Only yesterday it was reported the Di Matteo was being lined up to replace his compatriot Paolo di Canio in the hotseat at the Stadium of Light but now the Uruguayan Gus Poyet has leaped to the front of the queue and even been slashed to 'evens' with some bookmakers.

Poyet parted company with Championship side Brighton & Hove Albion in June, despite leading the club to the play-offs, after initially being suspended by the club for 'gross misconduct' and is still considering taking legal action against the club according to reports.

The 45-year-old has been linked with several clubs since leaving Brighton - including Reading, Fulham and Stoke.

Like Di Canio, Poyet started his coaching career in the Football League and would seem to have a similar ethos. Whereas, Di Matteo, who guided Chelsea to the Champions League title in 2012, has more of a reserved character and lets his talking take place on the pitch. 

Sunderland dismissed Di Canio after only 13 games in charge of The Black Cats with the club at the bottom of the Premier League table with only one point to show from their fixtures thus far and will have coach Kevin Ball in charge of first-team affairs for the foreseeable future.
