WEST BROM EYEING UP MOVE FOR SUNDERLAND MAN

Sky Bet Championship side West Bromwich Albion are interested in appointing Sunderland boss Jack Ross as the club’s new manager, according to reports from The Sun on Sunday (14/04, page 61).

The Scotsman has impressed since his appointment at the Stadium of Light, guiding his side to within touching distance of the automatic promotion spots.

The 42-year-old was a resounding success during his time with St. Mirren, leading his side to the Scottish Championship title whilst winning PFA Scotland Manager of the Year award for 2017/18.

But reports have now emerged that West Bromwich Albion, who are still on the look-out for a new manager following the sacking of Darren Moore in February, are interested in Ross.

Reports also claim that the Black Cats boss could be a contender for the Scotland job if a vacancy were to come up, though you would imagine that a chance to manage a team challenging for Premier League promotion would be too big to turn down.

Alex Neil was believed to be Albion’s number one target, but the Preston North End boss signed a new deal at Deepdale on Sunday afternoon, putting an end to any chances of the Baggies hiring him.

After a 4-1 win over Preston at the weekend, West Brom sit nine points off the top two spots.
