“Big Sam” Agrees to Take Over at Troubled West Brom


Sam Allardyce has verbally agreed to become the next West Brom manager.

The final details of his contract are still being drawn up, but there is broad agreement on an 18-month-deal, which includes a break clause at the end of this season if Albion are relegated.

Allardyce sees the job as an ideal opportunity for him to return to football after more than two and a half years away, and is confident he can keep Albion in the Premier League.
