Alan Pardew holds talks with West Brom

The 2017/18 Premier League season has already seen Roy Hodgson and David Moyes return to the dugout - while Sam Allardyce has been nauseously linked with every vacancy going - and we could now see another member of the old guard, Alan Pardew, back in management very soon.

It’s now been a week since West Brom sacked Tony Pulis, and unlike Everton whose own manager search has been an absolute shambles, the Baggies appear to be closing in on an appointment.

Within 24 hours of Pulis’ departure it was Pardew who emerged as the surprise hot favourite for post, ahead of the likes of Sam Allardyce, Derek McInnes and Michael O’Neill.

Now, after holding talks with the Midlands outfit, Pardew can be found at just 1/10 with one bookmaker as he edges nearer a return to the dugout, having been out of action since leaving Crystal Palace a year ago. 

Over the weekend the Silver Fix told Sky Sports:

“I’ve had discussions with them. It’s an attractive job so we’ll see where it goes.

“It’s a club that I think have a really good set of players and it’s a really good opportunity for a manager.

“If it’s me, it’s me!

On Saturday West Brom’s caretaker boss Gary Megson recorded a creditable point away to a Tottenham side who have previously beaten the likes of Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool on home soil this season.

Megson, whose own future is unclear, will now look to bow out with a win on Tuesday when his troops face Rafa Benitez's out-of-form Newcastle outfit who have on a four game losing streak.
