West Bromwich Albion face frustration in their pursuit of Ralf Rangnick.

Rangnick remains the leading contender for the Baggies hotseat as the search for Roy Hodgson's successor headed towards its sixth week, says the Express & Star.

But the former Schalke manager, who has held several rounds of talks with Albion, is being touted strongly in Belgium as a candidate to manage the national side.

The Belgians are considering replacing interim boss Marc Wilmots with a more experienced permanent manager and Rangnick's name has emerged as one being considered by the national federation.
