West Brom eyeing Brentford boss Dean Smith, Appleton

West Brom are eyeing Brentford boss Dean Smith.

The Sun says after the dismissal Alan Pardew, the Baggies have targeted Leicester No2 and ex-Albion midfielder Michael Appleton and Brentford boss Smith - after accepting relegation is all but inevitable.

Pardew was told of his dismissal in a phone call yesterday morning.

The plan had been to wait until the end of the season to avoid more upheaval in a nightmare season.

But the fans' reaction to Saturday's lacklustre defeat by Burnley - their ninth in a row - persuaded Baggies bosses to act sooner.
