West Brom are set to hold talks with Chris Hughton next week over their managerial position.

Hughton was sacked by Brighton and Hove Albion earlier this week but could be set for an immediate return to the dugout with the Baggies, as per a report by Birmingham Live.


West Brom will be playing in the Championship again next season after losing on penalties to rivals Aston Villa in the Play-Offs last night.

They sacked Darren Moore in March and replaced him with James Shan until the end of the season.

The Midlands side are now set to turn to Chris Hughton and see him as the man to guide them back to the Premier League in the next campaign.

The 60-year-old knows what it takes to gain promotion from the Championship and has done before on two occasions. He guided Newcastle United to the top flight in 2010 and Brighton in 2017.

He played for the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United and Brentford in his playing days before first getting into coaching with Spurs.

Hughton joined Newcastle United as a coach in 2008 before getting the managerial job a year later. He left Newcastle in 2010 and subsequently joined Birmingham City.

He spent a year at St Andrews before joining Norwich City in 2012. Hughton then moved onto Brighton in 2014 and spent five years there before being dismissed this week.

Could he be the man to get West Brom promotion next season?
