Former Toon boss Sam Allardyce will not apply for the head coach vacancy at West Brom, but Chris Hughton could be interested. Roy Hodgson, Chris Hughton, former Albion skipper Derek McInnes and ex-West Brom player Martin Jol have already been linked with a move to the Hawthorns. Hughton was quizzed last week about his future (before the West Brom post became available) and he said: "I'm starting to look around now. "I've taken in few games, and I'm sure I get linked to every manager's post available, but there are no plans as yet. "I will wait and see what comes my way. "But I will admit I am starting to look now."
