Former West Bromwich Albion midfielder – and current Aberdeen manager – Derek McInnes is interested in the vacancy at the Hawthorns, according to TEAMtalk.
The outlet claims that the Dons boss is ready to return to his former club and that he and his family are prepared to move south if the Baggies offer him the job.
The Championship outfit sacked Darren Moore after the team drew with basement boys Ipswich Town on Saturday, despite the club currently residing in fourth place in the table.
McInnes has worked wonders in his six year stint at Pittodrie and it feels as if a move to England is inevitable at some point for the 47-year-old.
This is an interesting one, isn’t it? McInnes has impressed hugely during his time at Aberdeen, restoring the club to respectability and solidifying them as Celtic’s biggest threat over the past few non-Rangers years. The club are now in a stable place and firmly entrenched at the top end of the Scottish Premiership table. As mentioned, he will take a job in England at some point and West Brom seems like an ideal fit. He is a former player and obviously has a lot of affection for the club. It’s a big job at the Hawthorns at the moment, because the club is demanding promotion this season, but McInnes has shown that he can do a lot with a little. He has overachieved tremendously at Aberdeen, so imagine what he could do with the Baggies. Still, it’s a risky appointment in that his time at Bristol City ended disastrously. He’s a new manager now, though, and so he could be worth a punt for West Brom.
