Carlos Carvalhal has established an interest in taking over as the new manager of West Brom, according to a report from The Telegraph

The Baggies have struggled for form in recent times and, on Saturday evening, opted to sack Darren Moore as they seek fresh leadership ahead of the run-in towards the end of the season. 

10 Championship games remain and, with West Brom currently sat in fourth place, the hierarchy is looking to appoint a new first-team boss swiftly. 

Slavisa Jokanovic, who was sacked by Fulham earlier on in the season, has held talks with the Baggies’ board, according to the report, but other candidates are under consideration.

The Telegraph states that ex-Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner has been earmarked as an option, while Preston North End manager Alex Neil is also of interest. 

However, one person who would be willing to take the reins at The Hawthorns is Carvalhal, who has been out of work since the summer. 

The Portuguese tactician was sacked after he failed to keep Swansea City in the Premier League, as Southampton narrowly pipped them to top-flight survival last season. 

Although Jokanovic appears to be West Brom’s favoured choice for the job, Carvalhal seems to be waiting in the wings if the Baggies do opt to look elsewhere.
