Hughes quickly overtook Silva at the top of the market last night, with the Welshman cut to just 4/11, although he's now hovering around the 1/2 mark in the betting. Click the right arrow above to see who the favourite is, according to SunBet odds...
Interesting to look at the Premier League relegation odds after Saturday's action.
Southampton are hoping to have Pellegrino's successor in place for Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final against Wigan Athletic.
"As far as the situation we are in at the moment, it makes sense to go with someone who has Premier League experience, who doesn't have to get to know a new set of players".
Hughes was sacked by Stoke City in January.
They now have only one win in seven and have conceded 11 goals in the last three matches, plus there is total civil war breaking out between fans and club.
While some may question Saints hiring a manager from the merry-go-round with Hughes having a mixed bag of results managing Blackburn, Manchester City, Fulham, QPR and Stoke over the years, it may well spark their under-performing squad into life.
