Former Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood is the leading contender for the West Bromwich Albion job, according to the bookmakers.

Sherwood was relieved of his duties at White Hart Lane after only five months in charge of the club, despite having the highest win percentage of any Tottenham manager in the Premier League era.

One of his trademarks was brutal honesty in interviews which received mixed reviews from fans and pundits. Some believed that it was refreshing for a manager to say it how it is.

Others took the contrasting view that it was an outdated style of management and he would have to evolve if he wanted to continue being a manager.

Reports suggested that the 45-year-old lost the dressing room after he accused some players would forget Spurs' defeat to Chelsea on the motorway.

West Brom are looking for a successor to Pepe Mel after he was unsuccessful in stopping them flirt with relegation, the Baggies only finishing one place above the drop zone.

The club have previously demonstrated that they will give opportunities to managers with little experience. 

Despite a vast experience working as an assistant, it was West Brom who gave Mel's predecessor Steve Clarke his first taste of Premier League management on a permanent basis.

After a successful first season in charge, the Baggies were unable to continue that good form into the following season and as a result the Scot was placed on gardening leave in December.

It was also the Midlands club that gave future Champions League winning manager Roberto Di Matteo a chance a Championship management after a first successful season in charge of the MK Dons.

Under Di Matteo the Baggies were promoted back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.
