Manager trio all eager to hear from West Brom

West Brom have received encouragement in their search for a new manager.

The Express & Star says Leicester assistant Michael Appleton, Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes and Ostersunds FK manager Graham Potter would all be open to an approach from the Baggies.

Albion have already started drawing up a list of potential replacements for Alan Pardew following his departure by mutual consent yesterday.

Appleton, McInnes and Brentford boss Dean Smith are all believed to be in the board's thinking at this early stage.

However, they are not expected to appoint a new head coach until the summer, when chief executive Mark Jenkins completes his reboot of the club following a root-and-branch review.
