Michael Appleton, Mick McCarthy and Derek McInnes in the running to replace Alan Pardew at West Bromby Jack Kitson / 02 April 2018, 15:36Tweet
West Brom are on the hunt for their third permanent manager of the season after mutually parting ways with Alan Pardew on Easter Monday.
Pardew was only appointed at the back end of November - when he replaced the sacked Tony Pulis - but he now exits the club after just four months in charge, during which he picked up a meagre eight points, and one win, from a possible 54 in the Premier League.
Pardew, who is the 10th victim of this season's top-flight Sack Race, leaves the Baggies rock-bottom of the table, 10 points adrift of safety with just six games to go.
Unfortunately for West Brom fans it does appear that the club are destined for Championship football next term, meaning it's difficult to envision another boss coming in before the end of the season.
Afterall no manager wants a relegation on their CV.
With this in mind caretaker boss Darren Moore is likely to oversee the first team until the summer.
Leicester's assistant manager Michael Appleton has emerged as the early 4/1 favourite to be the club's next permanent manager. Appleton has previously managed the likes of Oxford, Blackburn, Blackpool, and Portsmouth, while he oversaw one game as West Brom caretaker seven years ago.
Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy, 5/1, will be a free man in the summer after announcing last week that he'll be leaving the Suffolk, side, while other contenders include Derek McInnes, Craig Shakespeare, Nigel Pearson, and Sheffield United gaffer Chris Wilder.
