West Brom are still in the hunt for a new manager after sacking Darren Moore last week.
The Baggies have been linked with the likes of former Watford and Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic as well as the current Preston North End boss Alex Neil.
However, Neil, whose Preston side are looking for a Play-Off place, has ruled himself out of the running for the vacant hot seat at the Hawthorns.
The former Norwich City boss has said, as per a report by Birmingham Live: “It is a case of someone saying something to a paper somewhere or someone starts a rumour, then all of a sudden it catches fire and it is all over the place.”
“The one thing that is absolutely guaranteed is that I have had no discussions with anyone about anything other than Preston North End. That is it.”
He also added: “West Brom need a manager at the moment. They will do what they do. I don’t have any control over that”.
Neil has done an impressive job at Preston on a small budget and they are four points off the top six of the Championship at the moment. He has been promoted to the Premier League before when he guided Norwich there in 2015 via the Play-Offs.
West Brom will have to look elsewhere for their new manager, with most signs pointing towards Jokanovic now,
