West Bromwich Albion are considering a swoop for Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray, as per a report by HITC Sport.

The Baggies are bottom of the Premier League and look set to be playing their football in the Championship next season. They will be in the hunt for a new manager in the summer and are considering a move for their former boss.

Tony Mowbray managed the Baggies from 2006 to 2009. The 54-year-old has managed West Brom in a similar position to what they are in now with them coming down to the Championship and had a successful time at the Hawthorns. He took over them after they were relegated from the Premier League in 2006 and guided them the Play-Off final in his first season. However, they lost to Derby County in the final.

He then bounced back and won the Championship title with the Baggies in the next season in 2008 and got them to the FA Cup Semi Final. West Brom were then relegated from the top flight after just a season and Mowbray left them for Celtic.

Mowbray played for Ipswich Town, Middlesbrough and Celtic as a player. He started his managerial career at Hibernian before joining West Brom. After leaving the Baggies in 2009, he joined Celtic but he did not last a season with them.

He has since had spells at Middlesbrough and Coventry City and took charge of Blackburn Rovers. He could not prevent them from going down to League One but has them top of the league now and they look set for a return to the Championship now.
