Aston Villa are continuing their search for Alex McLeish's successor, with Norwich manager Paul Lambert the new favourite with bookmakers.
Lambert was reluctant to talk about his future on Tuesday night and would only say "I'm delighted at Norwich, I've never said I wanted away."
But he is 100-30 to succeed McLeish after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer withdrew from the race because of personal reasons and family commitments.
Villa are adamant they were carrying out due diligence on other potential candidates even after interviewing Molde manager Solskjaer over the weekend.
A Villa source said: "The club is getting on with the process of finding a new manager and this process has been very focused from the outset.
"The timeframe is not as important as getting the best man to be the manager.
"The club feels well positioned right now with a number of candidates under consideration."
Wigan manager Roberto Martinez, who rejected the chance to take charge of Villa last summer, is second favourite at 4-1 with former Villa player and current Huddersfield boss Simon Grayson 6-1.
what do you think?
Grayson isn't an option if you look at the names on the list some are baffling when you look at billic who is already signed by moscow starting from new season
