IT'S a bit of deja vu with Roberto Martinez being linked with the Aston Villa job just as he was a year ago.

Wigan gaffer Martinez is 15-8 with Paddy Power to replace the sacked Scot.

Other names in the frame include Norwich’s Paul Lambert at 3-1 and out-of work Rafa Benitez at 10-1.

A cluster of names come in at 12-1 including Chelsea caretaker boss Roberto di Matteo, Brighton’s Gus Poyet and Alan Curbishley.

Meanwhile Paul Scholes is just 2-1 to travel with the England squad to Euro 2012 according to Ladbrokes.

The bookies slashed the Man United midfielder's odds from 16-1 following the announcement his former team-mate Gary Neville has been appointed a member of the England coaching staff.
