Trio of west Midlands clubs all reportedly looking at the Uruguayan after seeing him take Brighton to the Championship last season and the brink of the playoffs this campaign
Gus Poyet is thought to be interesting West Brom, Aston Villa and Wolves as all three Midlands clubs look for new managers according to The Daily Mail.
The Baggies are looking for a new boss and chief executice Jeremy Peace is thought to be considering an approach to the Uruguayan's current club, Brighton, after their final game of the season at home to Arsenal.
The former Chelsea midfielder has done a stellar job at the Seagulls, rescuing them from relegation to League Two before guiding the side to promotion the following season and 10th place in the Championship this campaign.
Brighton occupied a play-off spot for much of the campaign and may want to keep hold of Poyet as they launch another promotion bid next season.
Villa are also thought to be interested in Poyet with fans exasperated over a season under Alex McLeish's management.
The Villans have slipped down the table and were close to becoming embroiled in the end-of-season relegation scrap, with supporters disappointed with McLeish's tactics and the lack of results they have garnered.
Wolves will be playing their matches in the Championship next season after failing to beat the drop.
Terry Connor was appointed interim manager following Mick McCarthy's sacking but has failed to win any of his games in charge.
