Tim Sherwood has now become the favourite to replace Pepe Mel and become the new West Brom head coach, according to the Daily Express.
Recent developments have emerged that Sherwood is most likely to take over at the Hawthorns even though he has been strongly linked with the vacant job at Southampton.
The ex-Tottenham boss, who was extremely unfortunate to lose his job at White Hart Lane after an impressive six months in charge, has reportedly already held formal talks with the West Midlands side.
Despite his lack of managerial experience, Sherwood has now overtaken Fulham boss Felix Magath as the most desired replacement at Southampton but Ronald Koeman is still a strong contender to take charge at West Brom.
Even though Sherwood held the highest win percentage of any other Spurs manager in Premier League history, it was deemed not good enough, as the 45-year-old was fired by the north London club just half a year into his 18 month contract.
Sherwood's short time in charge of Tottenham reflects his longest time in management, yet he has still done enough to attract the interest of Premier League clubs, however, if he were to choose West Brom, the fans may have their reservations about his experience and his temperament.
Saying this, Sherwood produced free flowing attacking football with Spurs and can bring some much needed excitement and purpose to West Brom after a goal-dry season, although he won't have the firepower at his disposal like he did at White Hart Lane.
