West Brom to approach Brentford boss Smith, Leicester coach Appleton

West Brom are planning an approach for Brentford boss Dean Smith.

The Daily Mail says Smith and Leicester City coach Michael Appleton are set to receive official approaches from West Brom.

The club are stepping up their search for a head coach, with Smith and Appleton high on their wanted list.

Smith has attracted attention for his work at Walsall and Brentford, with those sides playing attractive football, while Appleton, Leicester's No 2, is thought of highly at the Hawthorns having played and coached for West Brom previously.

Albion are keen to appoint a new manager in the next fortnight and Darren Moore's success in caretaker charge cannot be overlooked.
