According to a report in the Independent, Gareth Barry and Chris Brunt both told West Bromwich Albion’s board to appoint Darren Moore.

West Brom are set to appoint Moore as their new manager in the next few days, after the caretaker boss impressed during his time in interim charge.

Moore came in to replace Alan Pardew towards the back end of the season, and almost gave West Brom hope of completing a remarkable escape.

The rookie manager led the Baggies to victory over Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, and picked up a point against Liverpool.

Moore’s work was so impressive that both Barry and Brunt approached West Brom’s board to tell them to appoint him.
