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.
