West Bromwich Albion have been linked with making a move for former West Ham United boss Slaven Bilic.

Former Arsenal Footballer Ray Parlour speaks during the Western Sydney Wanderers Gold Star Luncheon at The Westin on July 14, 2017 in Sydney, Australia.

Ray Parlour has told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, which was broadcast on 21st November on TalkSPORT, that he cannot believe that West Bromwich Albion would appoint Slaven Bilic.

Reports in The Sun suggest that West Brom have made West Ham United boss Bilic one of their top targets to replace Tony Pulis at the Hawthorns.

However, Parlour cannot see Bilic making such a swift return to management, after being let go by West Ham.

The former Arsenal midfielder said: “Bilic has been mentioned, which I’d be amazed. I can’t see that.”

Bilic’s management style would be a huge change from Pulis’, if he was to take charge at West Brom.

Bilic was considered to be too relaxed in training by some of his critics at West Ham, which is in stark contrast to Pulis’ disciplined style.

West Brom have also been linked with the likes of Ronald Koeman and Sam Allardyce, as they look to find a replacement for Pulis.

Pulis left West Brom yesterday, with the Baggies currently sat in 17th place in the Premier League table.
