According to The Times, Slaven Bilic looks set to lose his job at West Brom just days after falling to a late 2-1 defeat at St James’ Park.
The Croatian actually picked up a good result at the Etihad last night, with the Baggies holding Man City to a surprise 1-1 draw, however it seems he’s destined to become the first Premier League casualty of 2020/21.
The Times’ Matt Lawton reports that former Newcastle United boss Sam Allardyce is ‘under consideration’ to replace the 52-year-old, with Nigel Person (another ex-Mag), Mark Hughes and Eddie Howe also said to have been shortlisted.
Elsewhere, the likes of talkSPORT, The Telegraph and The Sun claim that Sam Allardyce is the man Baggies chiefs have identified as their ‘top target’, believing his experience at Sunderland, Palace, Blackburn and Bolton can help steer them to safety.
Bilic helped West Brom to promotion last term, but, with just one win in 13 games, he looks set to leave the club in second bottom and two points adrift from safety.
