West Brom are moving swiftly to fill their managerial vacancy, with the club having only 10 matches remaining of the season as they look to get promotion straight back to the Premier League.
According to a report in the Express & Star, Preston North End manager Alex Neil is now a strong contender to fill the managerial vacancy despite Albion bosses having already made contact with the representatives of Slavisa Jokanovic for initial discussions.
Neil though is high up on the Baggies’ wanted list, though so far, no formal approach has been made to Preston.
So should Preston be worried about West Brom’s interest in Neil?
“They shouldn’t be concerned.
“Slavisa Jokanovic is the clear front-runner to succeed Darren Moore and I just can’t see West Brom making a move for Neil.
“He’s been impressive with Preston but hasn’t done enough to warrant a move to West Brom.”
“He won’t go to West Brom.
“If he intended to leave Preston, he’d have made more of the Celtic link.
”He’s going nowhere.”
“They should have some sort of concern for their manager’s future.
“He has done well at Preston, and it is clear that clubs are taking notice now.
“Sooner or later he will leave, and West Brom could be his next challenge.”
