Bookies suspend betting for Villas-Boas taking Chelsea job

Bookmakers are suspending betting on Chelsea's next manager.

The Mirror says William Hill have suspended their market on the next Chelsea manager after a surge of support for Porto coach Andre Villas-Boas saw his odds slashed from 8/1 to 11/10.

"There are reports that he is lined up for the job with Guus Hiddink overseeing his role" said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe. "We will wait and see whether any announcement is imminent before re-opening."

Both Chelsea and Porto were declining to comment this morning.
