In an exclusive interview with The Transfer Tavern, Dean Windass, who made 402 appearances during his career, has claimed that Chris Wilder could be heading to West Brom with Sam Allardyce unlikely to stay with them in the Championship.
Wilder was surprisingly sacked by the Blades earlier this year despite the club appearing to be destined for relegation and the 53-year old has previously been linked with the soon to be vacant role at the Hawthorns.
Would Wilder be a good appointment for West Brom?
After the Baggies drew 1-1 with their local rivals Wolves, they must now win all of their remaining four games and hope that Newcastle United fail to pick up any more points to have a chance of staying in the Premier League.
Speaking on how Wilder could be heading to West Brom and why Allardyce won’t be staying with the Baggies, Windass exclusively told The Transfer Tavern:
“I heard a rumour about Chris Wilder going to West Brom and the only reason why I believe that is because I can’t see Allardyce managing in the championship because he’s a Premier League manager.
“Why wouldn’t West Brom want Chris Wilder? He might take a couple of Sheffield United players to West Brom because that’s how it works nowadays, but everything is just speculation in football.”
West Brom appeared to have given themselves a fighting chance of staying up following back-to-back wins against Chelsea and Southampton but two points from their following three games has all but killed off their chances.
Allardyce has a clause in his contract which allows him to walk away from the Hawthorns if he fails to keep the Baggies in the Premier League.
