Promotion-chasing West Brom are said to be targeting Birmingham City boss, Garry Monk as their next permanent boss according to the Daily Mail.
The report claims that Monk will be considered for the vacancy at The Hawthorns even if the Baggies are to win promotion back to the Premier League this season.
The former Swansea and Middlesbrough manager has been impressive with Birmingham this season, and has steered his side clear of their relegation fears.
Monk has certainly made a good impression on the Baggies and they’d be appointing a manager with experience which is exactly what they need.
But Birmingham supporters have every reason to be fearing he could depart in the summer, as West Brom are definitely going to be a tempting prospect, especially if they are to win promotion to the Premier League.
The Blues have been impressive this season, and under Monk’s guidance, many of the club’s supporters will have felt that he is the perfect manager to take them in the right direction in the Championship.
He’s not had a considerable amount of funds available to him in his time with the club due to the FFP restrictions that are currently in place.
Now obviously you’re not going to want to see your manager depart for a team that are local to you, but Birmingham fans could hardly begrudge Monk of a move elsewhere.
The 40-year-old hasn’t exactly stuck around in his recent jobs, and you struggle to see as to whether it will be different with the Blues after this latest report.
An interesting summer awaits for Monk at Birmingham, especially if West Brom are to further their interest in bringing him to The Hawthorns.
