West Brom are looking for a suitable replacement for Steve Clarke, who was let go after last weekend’s defeat to Cardiff and had looked to sound out the 36-year-old, who has been linked with a number of jobs since losing his job with Spurs at the beginning of the week.
The Portuguese coach had been tipped for the vacant post with Ligue 1 giants Marseille, but has so far declined to comment on where his future may lie.
