Paolo Di Canio has emerged as the bookmakers' favourite to land the managerial vacancy at Reading.

The Italian, who recently left his role at Swindon Town because of differences with the board, was spotted at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday and could be the man to fill the void left by Brian McDermott's sacking.

McDermott was given his marching orders by owner Anton Zingarevich on Monday and it is believed that former mercurial West Ham United striker Di Canio is among the early favourites to take the Royals' reigns.
