Preston North End boss Alex Neil is reportedly a ‘strong contender’ to replace Darren Moore at West Brom.

Sky Sports News reporter Rob Dorsett has tweeted to say that no formal approach has been made by the Baggies, but he’s a manager on their radar.

Slavisa Jokanovic has held talks with the club about the role following the departure of Moore.

The former Fulham boss has been the initial favourite to take the job, but Neil is also believed to be a target.

Dorsett adds that the West Brom officials are due to travel back to China later, something that is expected to speed up the process.

The Preston boss was also linked with a summer move to Celtic as a potential replacement for Brendan Rodgers, but those links were swiftly played down.

Neil has impressed during his time with Preston, with the club in and around the play-off spots while working on a limited budget.
