West Brom have sacked Slaven Bilic and are lining up Sam Allardyce as his replacement.
The 52-year-old is the first managerial casualty in the Premier League this season as he leaves the Baggies after just 18 months in charge.
Bilic guided West Brom to second place in the Championship last season, securing promotion to the Premier League.
The Baggies currently sit 19th in the Premier League having secured just one win in their opening 13 games.

However, in Bilic’s final game in charge West Brom held Manchester City to a 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday evening.
Meanwhile, Allardyce is favourite to take charge of West Brom and the club are hopeful of announcing his appointment before their Premier League clash with Aston Villa on Sunday.
Allardyce has been out of work since he was sacked by Everton after just six months in charge in May 2018.
A statement from West Brom on Wednesday read: ‘West Bromwich Albion have today parted company with Head Coach Slaven Bilic. Assistant Coaches, Dean Racunica and Danilo Butorovic, and First Team Coach Julian Dicks have also left the club with immediate effect.
‘The Baggies are currently 19th in the Premier League table with seven points from 13 fixtures. Albion would like to thank Slaven and his coaching staff for their efforts in achieving promotion last season and wishes them all well in the future.’
