Some West Bromwich Albion fans are casting admiring glances in the direction of Sheffield United's Chris Wilder.

West Brom sacked manager Tony Pulis on Monday morning, after a run of two wins from a possible 20.

Michael O'Neill, Derek McInnes and Sam Allardyce and among the early favourites to succeed him with the bookies, while established bosses Alan Pardew, Ronald Koeman and Slaven Bilic also feature prominently.

As manager of his boyhood club, Wilder would not be easy to prise away from Bramall Lane were West Brom to make an approach.
