Alan Pardew set to be appointed as West Brom manager

West Brom are set to appoint former Newcastle and Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew as their manager in place of Tony Pulis.

The Baggies sacked Tony Pulis on 20 November after the club went for 10 Premier League games without a victory and was left just one point above the relegation zone.

Pardew, 56, who himself has been out of a job since he was sacked by Crystal Palace in December 2016, is expected to sign a deal until 2020 as he prepares to assume the role of Albion’s sixth permanent manager since 2011.

West Brom let slip a two-goal lead on Tuesday as they drew 2-2 at home to Newcastle, but moved up to 16th place in the table ahead of Everton.

Pardew will take charge of his first game against former club Palace at The Hawthorns on Saturday, as Albion then face trips to Liverpool and Swansea before a home fixture against Manchester United.

The English coach has also had spent time at Reading, West Ham, Charlton and Southampton in an 18-year managerial career, highlighted with two FA Cup final defeats.

Former West Brom boss Gary Megson has taken temporary charge since Pulis’ departure.

“I will meet the chairman at 10:00 tomorrow, what about? I don’t know,” Megson said following the draw against Newcastle. “Something has to be done at some point. I was just told in the interim period to take the team. What I’ve done the last eight or nine days is what I’ve done for the last 20 years, so I have enjoyed all that.”

“I haven’t applied for manager jobs in the last three years but whatever happens now, if ones do come up I will apply.”
