Former West Brom manager Darren Moore is set for a return to management, according to reports.

Moore has been out of work since his shock departure from Sheffield Wednesday. He led the Owls to promotion from League One in May but left Hillsborough over various issues and was replaced by Xisco Munoz.

The 49-year-old now looks to make a return after three months. Alan Nixon, a journalist for The Sun, clams on his Patreon that Moore will become the next manager of Huddersfield Town.

Earlier this week, Neil Warnock announced that he would be departing the club. The 75-year-old is in charge of the Terriers’ EFL Championship clash with Stoke City but will depart following the conclusion of their match after deciding to make way following a change in approach from their owners.

Moore will be denied a return to The Hawthorn’s this season however should his appointment be made official as both teams have already played.

Neil Warnock guided the Yorkshire side to a 2-1 win over the Baggies in September just before the international break. The reverse fixture is at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday, March 9, 2024.

The Birmingham-born centre-back began his managerial career with West Brom in 2018. He was appointed caretaker manager after succeeding Alan Pardew and despite their relegation was appointed head coach.

Moore was sacked with just ten games into the 2018/19 Championship season however, and the club lost in the play-offs to Midlands rivals Aston Villa.

He oversaw 48 games during his time at West Brom, winning 23, drawing 13, and losing 12 which gave him a 47.9% win percentage.

After leaving West Brom, Moore had a stint at Doncaster Rovers and managed them from July 2019 to March 2021. Donny missed out on the playoffs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and his services were then acquired by Wednesday.
