Former West Brom midfielder Carlton Palmer has exclusively told The Transfer Tavern than Eddie Howe should snub a move to Celtic to remain in the Premier League.
The 43-year-old, who’s been a free agent since leaving his position at Bournemouth following their relegation last July, is the number one candidate to replace Neil Lennon at Parkhead having been strongly linked with the job since making a verbal agreement at the beginning of April.
Would Wilder be a good appointment for West Brom?
But Howe is reportedly waiting for the conclusion of Bournemouth’s play-off campaign in a bid to convince some of his former coaching staff to join him in the Scottish Premiership.
Since becoming frontrunner for the Celtic job, Howe has also been touted as a possible replacement for the departing Roy Hodgson at Crystal Palace, whilst Newcastle have also been mentioned.
The Magpies still have Steve Bruce in charge, but the Palace job is available after the ex-England boss confirmed he’ll be stepping down on Sunday.
With that in mind, Palmer has advised Howe to remain in the Premier League, but suggested his former side West Brom, who were recently relegated back to the Championship.
“No disrespect to Celtic, they’re a massive club, but the place to manage is in the Premier League,” he told The Transfer Tavern.
“The West Brom job isn’t as big as the Celtic job, but you’ve got a great chance to get them back into the Premier League.”
