West Brom to continue talks with  Slavisa Jokanovic as former Fulham manager heads four-man shortlist

West Bromwich Albion will have further talks with Slavisa Jokanovic on Monday as they pursue a new head coach, following the dismissal of Darren Moore.

Albion have made an approach for Jokanovic, the former Fulham manager, and he is understood to be the leading contender on a shortlist of four at the Hawthorns.

Jokanovic guided Fulham to the Premier League last season via the Championship play-off final before leaving the Cottagers in November. 

The 50-year-old Serbian also earned promotion to the Premier League with Watford in 2015 and is a free agent, so no compensation would be required.

West Brom’s board are also considering David Wagner, the former Huddersfield manager, and Preston North End’s Alex Neil as they have also earned promotion from the Championship.

Carlos Carvalhal, the former Swansea and Sheffield Wednesday manager, has also informed Albion he is interested in the post and is an option.
