Sabella was 16/1 to be the new head coach of Leeds this morning but is now the 3/1 favourite for the Elland Road hot seat.

The 59-year-old managed Argentina for the past three years and guided the country to the 2014 World Cup final.

Sabella managed Estudiantes from 2009 to 2011, winning the 2009 Copa Libertadores at the club.

The Argentine had a spell as a player at Leeds United during the 1980/81 season, amassing 23 appearances and scoring two goals.
