Report updates on Chris Wilder's possible move to West Bromwich Albion from Sheffield United

West Bromwich Albion are still looking for a permanent manager to replace Darren Moore.

According to the Express and Star, Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder would be interested in the West Bromwich Albion job, if Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia takes over from Kevin McCabe.

West Brom have made Wilder one of their top choices to take over at the Hawthorns, after the impressive job he has done at Sheffield United.

At first the rumours were swatted aside from supporters, who believed them to be unrealistic, but it seems that West Brom do have a chance of landing the 51-year-old.


Whether the Baggies will hold on until Wilder makes up his mind remains to be seen though.

West Brom do have other irons in the fire, with Slaven Bilic the closest to landing the job as things stand.

West Brom have been taking with Bilic in recent weeks and are said to have made good progress.

The Express and Star also claim that Chris Hughton should not be entirely ruled out yet.

All three appointments would surely appeal to West Brom fans, with the trio all having their own qualities.

The Baggies failed to earn promotion this past campaign, but if they can land Wilder, Bilic or Hughton this summer, then they will be right among the favourites to do so next time around.
