Chris Hughton is no longer in the running for the vacant manager's position at West Brom, Press Association Sport understands.

The Birmingham boss was thought to be on the shortlist of candidates to replace Roy Hodgson, but the Baggies have decided not to follow up their interest in the former Newcastle manager.

It is unclear why West Brom have decided against a move for Hughton, although the fact that the Blues were looking for £2million in compensation for the 53-year-old may have been a factor.
