West Brom are eyeing a move to bring Brentford boss Dean Smith to the club.
The Baggies are on the lookout for a new manager and although their stand-in boss Darren Moore impressed at the club during his time in charge, the club may not give the role to him on a permanent basis.
Instead, West Brom may try to take Dean Smith from Brentford and put him at the helm instead.
According to the Evening Standard, the Baggies are fans of the Bees boss and could try to prise him away from Brentford.
Smith at Brentford has impressed many since managing the club. Over the last few seasons, the manager has managed the club to top half finishes and even had the club challenging for the play-off places.
With Darren Moore, the Bees are considering him for the job on a full-time basis but he isn’t the only man on the club’s list of managerial candidates.
However, the Championship club won’t be too eager to let go of Smith. The manager is believed to have already held a talk with Brentford over plans for next season.
In addition, the manager has a deal with the Bees that only expires in 2020, meaning that the Baggies would pay the club a compensation fee if they were to take the Brentford manager.
Smith’s been the manager at Brentford for three seasons now. Before taking over at the club, he also managed another EFL team in Walsall, a club he managed for four seasons.
