West Brom coach Appleton to be confirmed Portsmouth manager today

Former West Bromwich Albion coach Michael Appleton is set to be confirmed as Portsmouth manager today.

Sky Sports report the West Brom assistant boss has beaten off interest from a number of top managers to land the Portsmouth job after impressing in interviews.

Portsmouth and West Brom have been thrashing out a compensation package for the last few days and now a deal has finally been struck.

Appleton, who will be embarking on his first managerial role, is understood to have agreed a three-and-a-half-year deal at Fratton Park.
