West Brom have been touted with interest in Cowley as they look to appoint a manager on a permanent basis this summer.
The club opted to sack manager Darren Moore in March after a string of poor results, with Jimmy Shan taking charge of the club until the end of the season.
Shan guided West Brom to a 4th place finish, but lost to Aston Villa in the semi-finals of the play-offs, with the club now considering their options going into next season.
,Middlesbrough, meanwhile, are looking for a new boss after they sacked Tony Pulis – ex-West Brom manager – on Friday.
