West Bromwich Albion are pushing to hold talks with Birmingham City manager Chris Hughton TODAY.

The Sun says Hughton is Albion's top target to replace Roy Hodgson and they will ask Brum for permission to meet with their manager.

Birmingham have made it clear they will not welcome any move from the Baggies for the 53-year-old.

But he is keen to discuss the Hawthorns job after losing out to Hodgson in February last year.
