Manchester United still favourites to sign Everton star

Manchester United remain favourites to sign Seamus Coleman before September 2nd.

Sky Bet claim the fading Premier League champions are 3/1 to bring the Everton full-back to the club in the summer transfer window, despite David Moyes' departure from Old Trafford earlier today.

The Scot took over the Red Devils in the summer, and utilised his link with the Toffees to bring Marouane Fellaini to the club. He was linked with other players on Merseyside too, including Coleman in a £15million swoop.

That saw the full-back's odds fall to their current position, but despite Moyes' exit, Manchester United are still at a short price to sign the Irishman.

Arsenal are second favourites at 16/1, with Tottenham Hotspur (25/1) next on the list before Chelsea and Manchester City (33/1). Liverpool are outsiders to land the player at an ambitious 50/1.

If Manchester United are to sign the player, then much will depend on the man who replaces Moyes at the Old Trafford helm at the end of the season.

Ryan Giggs has taken over on a temporary basis, but is unlikely to be in charge of transfer matters at the club, with the likes of Louis van Gaal and Jurgen Klopp at the top of that particular betting market.

Whilst signing a left-back might be a priority for the club ahead of someone on the opposite flank, Coleman has proved his ability in the Premier League this season, impressing against a number of top clubs - including Manchester United at the weekend.
