West Brom have sounded out Frank Lampard as their next manager but the ex-Chelsea boss isn’t interested in the vacancy at The Hawthorns, according to the Express & Star.
Lampard, 42, was sacked by eventual Champions League winners Chelsea in January and prior to his spell at Stamford Bridge, he managed to take Derby to the 2018/19 Championship play-off final.
However, after failing to hire Chris Wilder and David Wagner, Albion have kept tabs on Lampard but he seems very unlikely to be Sam Allardyce’s successor at The Hawthorns at this moment in time
Setback after setback
Are West Brom going to hire a manager at any point?
We seemed to be close to hiring Wilder before Guochuan Lai pulled the plug on that deal at a late stage.
Lai wasted a lot of time that was bound to have put in by Luke Dowling and other members of the board only to stop a deal for the ex-Sheffield United manager when we all thought he was going to be arriving in the Black Country.
Wagner then wasted our time, seemingly using the Baggies to get a better deal out of BSC Young Boys, who have now hired the ex-Huddersfield boss.
We wouldn’t have been too pleased with Wagner anyway but the options we’re left with, having not being able to hire Lampard, Wilder and Roy Hodgson, are very limited.
Derek McInnes and Alex Neil are both mentioned in the Express & Star’s report, with the latter being interviewed.
It wouldn’t be a good look if the Baggies went ahead and hired a manager who was third, fourth, fifth or sixth on their shortlist though.
In other West Brom news, Albion are in advanced talks to sell this long-serving player.
