Middlesbrough are also at 3/1 alongside last season's play-off finalists Aston Villa at 5/1 to take the honours.

But what odds are Leeds following Bielsa's appointment as head coach?

The Whites have dropped from 20/1 to just 8/1 to win the title following the Argentines arrival, while to be promoted next campaign United are now as short as 3/1 with some bookmakers having been at 5/1 just a month ago.

Bielsa is expected to arrive in West Yorkshire next Saturday ahead of the expected pre-season return date of June 25 at Thorp Arch.
