Tim Sherwood may be set to make a return to management in the Premier League with Newcastle United.
Sherwood got his first manager role in December 2013 replacing the sacked Andre Villas-Boas as the Tottenham first team coach.
Sadly for Sherwood, who had been a coach at the club since 2008 and played nearly 100 times for Spurs during his career, his time at Tottenham was very short lived and he was sacked by chairman Daniel Levy less than five months after he took charge.
Sherwood's successor Mauricio Pochettino sees his Spurs side just two points adrift of the top four and will be hoping to maintain their current form, which has seen them remain unbeaten in the last six games, can carry on to saturday when they face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
It is the Palace manager Alan Pardew's old job that the boyhood Arsenal fan is after however and has become the bookies favourite at evens. Sherwood isn't the only man who has been linked with the job.
Former Lyon boss Remi Garde is also a strong contender at 2/1 for a return to English football. The Frenchman was at Arsenal for three years during his playing career.
Outsiders include current caretaker boss John Carver (9/1) and Ajax manager Frank de Boer (10/1).
It looks as though Sherwood may be making a return to English football however with a fairly poor Tottenham record and the club not making any statement on any of the favourites it may be a while before the new Magpies manager is announced.
