Luton Town have asked West Brom for permission to speak to assistant manager Graeme Jones as they look for a successor to Nathan Jones.
The former Hatters boss took charge of Stoke City yesterday after a fine few years at Kenilworth Road.
That has left Luton on the lookout for a new manager at a critical stage of the season and Sky Sports have revealed that an approach has been made for Darren Moore’s assistant.
Jones left the Belgian national team in the summer to join up with Moore at The Hawthorns and is thought to be a very influential figure.
The Baggies boss was desperate to land Jones as his number two, and the pair have a close relationship going back years.
Therefore, it would be a big blow for Albion, who are currently fourth in the Championship and firmly in the hunt for promotion.
However, the chance to be the main man may appeal to Jones, who has spent his entire coaching career up to this point as assistant to Roberto Martinez, which includes spells at Swansea, Wigan and Everton.
Jones has a very good reputation in the game as a tactical, progressive coach, so you can see why Luton are keen to speak to him.
He would implement a similar style to Nathan Jones and the chance to become a manager has to interest him, particularly at a time with Luton flying high in League One.
For Albion, it would clearly be a massive loss as he is a trusted member of staff to Moore and it’s not what they need as they have eyes on the top-flight.
