West Brom in talks with Tony Pulis

Tony PulisTony Pulis could be set for his eagerly anticipated return to the dugout after it was revealed that the 56-year-old has opened up talks with managerless West Brom. The latest Premier League vacancy opened up on Monday after the Baggies lost faith in head coach Alan Irvine who became the second top-flight gaffer to suffer the sack since Christmas.

According to reports Albion have targeted Pulis as the man to rescue them from their current slump, with the Midlands strugglers currently one point above the relegation zone following a rotten run of seven defeats in their last nine outings, including their last three on the spin.

Pulis has been out of the managerial arena since leaving Crystal Palace just two days before the 2014/15 season kicked-off following a row with the club's hierarchy over their transfer policy. The Welshman, who landed the Premier League Manager of the Year award after leading the Eagles to a remarkable 11th place finish, has since been linked with a plethora of clubs, but has yet to be tempted out of the wilderness.

Tim Sherwood has also been hotly linked to Albion in the Next West Brom Manager Market, although his lack of experience could count against him, while his odds are currently drifting following the news that Pulis is being linked up as Irvine's successor. Elsewhere caretaker boss Keith Downing is a 33/1 long shot, as are the likes of Paul Clement and Brian McDermott.
