West Brom could complete a deal to hire Slaven Bilic as their new manager this week.

According to a report from the Express and Star, the Baggies are closing in on the former West Ham man as Darren Moore’s permanent replacement.

Bilic has very quickly emerged as the favourite for the West Brom job, with the Croatian keen to return to management in England.

A host of names had been linked with the role, but it is Bilic who appears to have done enough, with both parties eager to reach an agreement in the coming days.

While terms are yet to be agreed, Bilic spoke with West Brom’s board on two occasions last week.

An appointment at the Hawthorns has been a long time coming after Moore was originally sacked in March.

Jimmy Shan was given the reigns on a temporary basis but was unable to guide the club back to the Premier League via the play-offs.
