Mowbray linked with shock summer return to West Brom

Manchester United

West Brom are contemplating making an approach for former manager Tony Mowbray this summer, according to reports.

Darren Moore is currently in charge of the Baggies ‘until further notice’ following the sacking of Alan Pardew and the 43-year-old did his chances of getting the job permanently no harm after picking up a 1-0 win at Manchester United.

The West Midlands outfit are still destined to drop down to the Championship and, although the caretaker boss is doing a decent job, the club’s hierarchy are said to be looking at other options.

Latest reports are suggesting Mowbray, who was in charge at the Hawthorns from 2006-2009, is being considered for the vacant position along with Aberdeen chief Derek McInnes.

The 54-year-old is currently the Blackburn Rovers manager and he is on course to get the club promoted to the Championship, having guided the team to second place with four games remaining.

West Brom are said to be confident of tempting Mowbray, who will represent a cheaper option that some of the other potential candidates, back to the club this summer.
