5/2 Tim Sherwood is 5/2 with William Hill to be the next West Brom boss
Oscar Garcia resigned from his post at the Amex Stadium last week, with Sherwood, who parted company with Tottenham on Tuesday after half a season in charge, reportedly one of the leading contenders to take over.

However, the 45-year-old insists he has not held any talks with the Championship outfit but reiterated his desire to return to management as soon as possible.

"I have not spoken [to Brighton]. I have not been offered the job," he told talkSPORT.

"I've heard a lot of rumours, but I'm happy to speak to any clubs. I want to stay in management.

"I want to see if the club suits me. What I don't want to do is go into a situation where in five months' time I'm out of a job again."

Tottenham opted to exercise a break clause in Sherwood's contract last week after finishing sixth in the Premier League.
