West Bromwich Albion may move to appoint Tottenham Hotspur head coach Tim Sherwood this summer, according to The Mirror.

Sherwood was given an 18-month contract at White Hart Lane in December, but the former defensive midfielder is expected to be shown the door at the end of the season, with Mauricio Pochettino, Frank de Boer, David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal touted as possible replacements.

It is a similar story for current Baggies boss Pepe Mel, who signed a one-and-a-half-year deal when he took over from Steve Clarke in January.

West Brom have taken just 15 points from a possible 42 under Mel and rumours have began to spread that the Spaniard’s time at the Hawthorns could be short-lived.

It is thought that the 51-year-old will see out the rest of the season with the Black Country club, but The Mirror claims that his employers are considering replacing him with Sherwood at the end of the campaign if the Spurs boss becomes available.

Sherwood, who worked with Tottenham’s development squad prior to being handed control of first-team affairs, has guided Spurs to 12 wins in 20 Premier League games, drawing three and losing five.

He has shown a willingness to promote youth during his time in the White Hart Lane hot-seat, giving the likes of Harry Kane and Nabil Bentaleb extended runs in his team.
