West Brom are already searching for Roy Hodgson's successor even though England's new head coach will remain in charge for the final two games of the domestic season.

Former Charlton and West Brom boss Alan Curbishley has emerged as an early favourite with the bookmakers to replace Hodgson who has signed a four-year contract with the Football Association.

Current Birmingham boss Chris Hughton is also believed to be a leading candidate although club chairman Jeremy Peace admits Hodgson will be "a tough act to follow" after a successful 15-month spell.
