West Brom set to appoint Ian Pearce as head of recruitment

West Brom set to appoint Ian Pearce as head of recruitment

West Bromwich Albion look to have hit a blip in their pursuit of returning to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

The Baggies have not been able to win in their last three outings, which has seen two defeats and their goalscoring exploits completely dry up.

Darren Moore’s side will most likely look to head into the January transfer window with players in mind, and according to a report by The Daily Mail, they may have just made an appointment that could help them achieve their promotion aspirations.


The media outlet are claiming that Ian Pearce is set to join the club as their new head of recruitment, having worked largely successfully at Brighton and Hove Albion as their UK scouting manager.

The former Blackburn Rovers, West Ham United, Fulham and Chelsea defender will now coordinate with the West Brom’s current scouting network to find the best players available.

The Verdict:

West Brom have been looking to bolster their backroom staff in recent months and Pearce’s appointment could turn out to be an excellent one for the club.

Luke Dowling was employed by The Hawthorns outfit as a technical director last month, showing that the Baggies are determined to put the infrastructure in place for an immediate return to the Premier League.

It remains to be seen who Pearce will be able to find that can fit the system that Moore has in place, but January could become an exciting time for those at the club.
