According to The Express and Star, West Bromwich Albion have concerns about target Slavisa Jokanovic and whether his methods are right for the club.
The Baggies chose to part ways with boss Darren Moore earlier this month, ending his time in charge after a 1-1 home draw with Ipswich Town.
Fans are hoping to see a permanent appointment made sooner rather than later, but The Express and Star claim that there are problems with a move for Jokanovic.
The Serbian is the favourite for the job right now, especially having worked with Baggies technical director Luke Dowling during his time at Watford.
However, it's noted that West Brom want a manager who can give them an immediate boost ahead of the Championship play-offs – and there are concerns that Jokanovic may not be that man.
The 50-year-old has very specific methods, and West Brom allegedly have concerns that they would take too much time to implement, meaning Jokanovic may not end up at The Hawthorns after all. That concern is backed up by his early record at Fulham, where he won just three of his first 15 games in charge before eventually getting things going.
Preston boss Alex Neil is another option, as is Michael Appleton as an interim boss, but with many wanting Jokanovic to take the job having landed two promotions on his CV, the news may be a little deflating.
