West Bromwich Albion fans are reacting to reports Steven Reid could return to the Hawthorns.

Reid, who represented the Baggies as a player between 2010 and 2014, is expected to join Jimmy Shan's coaching staff until the end of the season, according to the Express & Star.

The report follows confirmation from West Brom at the start of this week that Shan will remain in interim charge for the remainder of the campaign, which is likely to extend into the play-offs.


And many of an Albion persuasion are delighted to have Reid back.

This is what they're saying on Twitter...










And for those who aren't as convinced, here's what some of Reid's former clubs' fans have said about him recently...





Reid - who retired from playing at Burnley four years ago - has since coached at Reading, Crystal Palace and AFC Wimbledon, whom he left in December.

West Brom plan to appoint another new coach as well as the 38-year-old, with Keith Downing, Kevin Phillips, Craig Shakespeare and Michael Appleton expected to be considered, according to the Express & Star.
