Alex Neil not being considered for West Brom job - reports

Alex Neil is not being considered for the vacant West Brom job this summer, according to BBC Radio West Midlands.

According to the local outlet, it is suggested that the former Preston man has been chalked off the list at The Hawthorns.

David Wagner looked set for the role on Wednesday, but talks collapsed and left the Baggies looking elsewhere once again.

The Athletic had suggested that despite annoying the Albion back in 2019, Neil could still be considered as a “serious contender.”

Writing on their personal Twitter account on Thursday afternoon, the BBC shut those rumours down before they grew legs.

“As things stand, BBC WM understands Alex Neil is not in contention to become Sam Allardyce’s successor.”

Shock.

We are obviously being sarcastic, with it looking as though there are no clear candidates to take charge as another name is chalked off.

It appears as though Derek McInnes may be the next to come under the microscope, with two names closed off on Thursday.

Joseph Masi, as shared by Tom Collomosse yesterday reported that the former Baggies star could return in a romantic appointment.

After Wagner and Wilder, it has been made clear that McInnes wasn’t the first choice of the club, and it will be interesting to see if that affects things.

One thing that has been made very clear though, is that it won’t be Neil leading us into the Championship next season.
