Interim boss Gary Megson guided West Brom to a 1-1 draw with Tottenham on Saturday, and the Baggies remain a point above the relegation zone.

And, speaking on Sky Sports, former West Ham and Newcastle United manager Pardew said: "It's a club who have a really good set of players. It's a good opportunity.

"Maybe they should be doing slightly better than they are. Looking at them and the depth of the squad, I think it's definitely got improvement in there.

"I've had discussions with them. Obviously it's an attractive job, so we'll see where it goes."
