West Brom have confirmed that caretaker manager Jimmy Shan will remain in charge until the end of the season.

As confirmed on the club’s official website, Luke Dowling has revealed the club have been delighted with the impact he has had on the squad since replacing Darren Moore.

Jimmy has fully earned this opportunity to take us through to the end of the campaign.

He has earned the support and confidence of the players who have bought into the structural and organisational changes Jimmy has introduced. He has the backing of everyone to push on now and take us forward with momentum.

Shan has impressed since taking over at West Brom and had been put in charge on a game-by-game basis as the Baggies continued their hunt for a new permanent manager.

The likes of Alex Neil and Slavisa Jokanovic have been linked with the job, but any permanent appointment will now surely be withheld until the summer.
