West Brom boss Alan Pardew may avoid the sack due to the lack of suitable candidates to replace him.
Pardew's job is on the line after their defeat to Huddersfield Town on Saturday.
The Daily Mail says Baggies owner Guochuan Lai and new chief executive Mark Jenkins reviewed Pardew's position on Sunday but decided to stick with him for now and will support the manager in the hope no further upheaval is required. They reached that decision partly because there are big issues regarding potential successors.
Marco Silva has been mentioned but it is understood the Portuguese coach views his horizons significantly higher.
West Brom are also aware Graham Potter, the Ostersunds manager who oversaw a 2-1 Europa League win at Arsenal last week, is interested in a return to England.
