West Brom: David Prutton believes Gary Rowett could be tempted to take up vacant post

EFL presenter and former professional David Prutton has said that Gary Rowett may be interested in taking the West Brom job.

The Baggies have been without a manager since sacking Steve Bruce earlier this month.

Scott Parker and Sean Dyche are among those names who have been linked with the vacant hot seat.

However, The Mirror have pitted Rowett amidst the contenders alongside Chris Wilder and Carlos Corberan.

The source suggested that those at The Hawthorns are encouraged by how the 48-year-old has performed at Millwall despite a limited budget. 

Now speaking on Sky Sports Prutton has said that although Rowett is happy with things at The Den he could be tempted by the chance to take over at Albion:

(3:19)”There will be a pull there because we’ve seen the recent history of West Brom compared to Millwall, that is not in any way shape, or form to disrespect Millwall and given where they’ve been specifically with their cracking home form of the last few seasons, getting near the play-offs but not quite getting into the playoffs and you would think that possibly with West Brom the players that he’s got or maybe the squad that he’s got and their ability possibly in January to go again could be a bit of a lure.

“He’s a very loyal manager and character though is Gary, but also very ambitious – I know that he likes where he’s at at this moment in time and who he’s got in his team and at the club, and there’s that very unique atmosphere down at Millwall, and whether that’s replicated at a place like West Brom I think remains to be seen.”

TIF Thoughts on Prutton’s comments…

Would Gary Rowett be a great appointment?

Yes what are they waiting on!

Yes what are they waiting on!



Rowett as now been at the Lions for three years having taken over in October 2019 and leading the club to an eighth-place finish, just two points shy of the top six that same season.

When he took charge of the south-east London club they were in 17th place a similar position to that of which the Baggies find themselves in at present.

He could well be the man to turn the Midlanders’ fortunes around but having come close again last term to reaching the playoffs with his current employers the Bromsgrove-born manager may well feel like he has unfinished business at Millwall but this is certainly one to keep an eye on.
