Pardew leaves West Brom
Alan Pardew has left West Brom by mutual consent only 5 months after taking charge at the Hawthorns.
The former West Ham, Newcastle and Crystal Palace manager was appointed by the West Midlands club after Tony Pulis had departed the club in November.
Pardew, however, has been unable to turn around the clubs fortunes, overseeing just one win in the league in his 18 games.
During this spell, the Baggies have only picked up a lean eight points from a possible 54 under Pardew, losing 2-1 at home to Burnley on Saturday, prompting his departure from the club.
Reports are suggesting that former Leicester managers Nigel Pearson and Craig Shakespeare, are the front runners to take the hot seat at the Hawthorns for the Baggies final six Premier League games of the season.
Regardless of whoever succeeds Pardew, the new manager faces an uphill battle to save West Brom’s Premier League status with games against Manchester United at Old Trafford and Liverpool at home in succession.
