West Brom are in the hunt for a new manager after sacking Steve Bruce. The Baggies have won just once so far this season and find themselves in the relegation zone in the Championship.

The Midlands outfit drew 0-0 at home to Luton Town at the Hawthorns over the weekend and that has proved to be the final straw for their current managerial set-up.

They now face a big decision on who to appoint next. Former Burnley boss Sean Dyche has emerged as the early frontrunner for the job on SkyBet and is the favourite at 5/1 (as of 10:15, 10.10.22).

Next up in running for the West Brom position is Scott Parker at 6/1. The former Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United midfielder was sacked by AFC Bournemouth earlier in this campaign after their 9-1 defeat away at Liverpool. He is then followed by Michael Carrick (8/1), Rob Edwards (9/1), Carlos Corberan (10/1), Liam Rosenior (14/1) and Mark Robins (14/1).

The early favourite Dyche was dimissed by Burnley back in June and he has since been weighing up his next move in the game. The ex-Watford boss spent just under 10 years in charge at Turf Moor and guided the Clarets to promotion to the Premier League and later to European football during his time in Lancashire.

He would be an ideal candidate for West Brom if they were able to lure him back into the Championship based on his previous experience, although other names appear to be in the frame too.
