West Brom coach Appleton prepared to take £100,000-a-year Portsmouth post

West Bromwich Albion coach Michael Appleton is set to become Portsmouth manager on a £100,000 salary.

Pompey have offered Appleton just £100,000 a year - peanuts for a Championship boss, and a wage packet that put off experienced duo Steve Coppell and Dave Jones, says the People.

The major sticking point is that Pompey have offered only £200,000 for his 'transfer' from the Hawthorns.

Appleton wants to be a manager in his own right but the Baggies want almost double the fee - and there is a stand-off between the clubs.
