Jokanovic leads four man shortlist to replace Darren Moore at WBA

Former Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic has emerged as the frontrunner to replace Darren Moore as West Brom manager.

Moore was surprisingly sacked by West Brom after their 1-1 draw with bottom club Ipswich Town on Saturday, with the club currently sat in fourth in the Championship, nine points off the automatic promotion places.

According to a report in the Telegraph, Jokanovic heads a four-man shortlist alongside former Huddersfield manager David Wagner, Preston North End’s Alex Neil and former Swansea and Sheffield Wednesday boss, Carlos Carvalhal.

Jokanovic has twice won promotion from the Championship, with Watford in 2015 and Fulham last season, and the 50-year-old’s experience of the division is said to appeal to the hierarchy at The Hawthorns.

With 10 games left of the season, West Brom bosses are determined to revive the side’s promotion hopes, with the club having won just four of their previous 12 fixtures.

The club are aiming for a swift return to the Premier League having been relegated last season, and return to action when they host Swansea City on Wednesday.
