West Brom have appointed Roberto Di Matteo as their new head coach.
The 39-year-old has signed a 12-month rolling contract to lead the the Baggies, relegated from the Barclays Premier League last season, and who have been searching for a new manager after Tony Mowbray left for Celtic earlier this month.
Di Matteo arrives with just one year's coaching experience under his belt after being appointed MK Dons manager last summer.
He enjoyed a successful first season in charge of the League One club as they missed a second consecutive automatic promotion by just two points before losing to Scunthorpe in the play-offs.
