West Brom hold talks with Steve Bruce

West Brom have held talks with former Newcastle boss Steve Bruce over their vacant managerial role.

The 61-year-old is favourite to replace Valerien Ismael, who left the club on Wednesday after a run of one win in seven league games.

Ex-Aston Villa, Hull, Sunderland and Birmingham manager Bruce left Premier League Newcastle in October, soon after their Saudi Arabia-backed takeover.

Albion are sixth in the Championship, eight points behind second.

Bruce has extensive experience in the Championship, getting promoted twice at both Birmingham and Hull.

Bruce’s longevity at The Hawthorns would depend on how the team fare over the remainder of this campaign, and which division they are in next season.

West Brom sacked Valerian Ismael on Wednesday afternoon, and announced that Gourlay had been appointed as the club’s new CEO to oversee the appointment of his replacement.
