Former West Brom midfielder Carlton Palmer has told The Transfer Tavern in an exclusive interview that he would be very surprised if Roy Hodgson returned to the Hawthorns.
Hodgson is out of work following his departure from Crystal Palace and is being linked with the West Brom job.
According to Football Insider, the Midlands club have actually made an approach for the 73-year-old, but that has been knocked back.
Would you have taken Hodgson back?
Yes, he's class!
All in all, it is simply something Palmer cannot see happening, though the ex-West Brom player expects Hodgson to return to football in the near future.
“I don’t think Roy Hodgson is finished with football yet. I don’t think he’s finished with football,” Palmer said.
“But I’d be very surprised if he took on the job of West Brom right now knowing what job that entails at this moment in time.”
The Baggies’ search for a new manager is really starting to drag on, with David Wagner now out of the running having looked set for the Hawthorns dug out.
This comes after a deal to bring former Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder also collapsed.
It remains to be seen where West Brom turn to now but, like Wagner and Wilder, Hodgson also seems to be out of the equation.
