Gerard Lyons has become front runner to replace Mark Carney as Bank of England Governor, according to an online oddsmaker.

The economist -- a former adviser to prime ministerial candidate Boris Johnson and a prominent advocate of Brexit -- is reported to have interviewed for the role and published an opinion column for the Financial Times Monday. Betway said it has cut the odds on him to 6/4 after seeing “notable support” from gamblers.
