Earlier this month, The Express & Star claimed that Dowling was on the radar of West Brom, who are playing in the Championship this season after getting relegated from the Premier League at the end of the 2017-18 campaign.
Dowling joined Forest only in February 2018, but, according to The Daily Mail, Championship rivals West Brom are poised to announce him as their technical director.
