West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke expects to have input into the club's next technical director.

Dan Ashworth is leaving the post in the summer for a high-level role with the FA.

Clarke told the Birmingham Mail: “I haven’t sat down yet with the chairman so I will find some time to do that and discuss it with him.

“As the news came out I was thinking more about the games – we have a busy spell coming up – so there is no pressing rush for it because the move won’t be immediate.

“There is no grave rush but I would like to sit down with Dan and the chairman and discuss the way forward.

“Dan will help the club make the transition from his era to a new era and we will all work together to make sure it’s as smooth as possible and a smooth transition.”
