West Bromwich Albion will appoint Darren Moore as their manager after his successful stint in interim charge.

Moore took over in April following the sacking of Alan Pardew and oversaw a striking improvement in results, winning three and drawing two of his six matches to give West Brom hope of survival where there had seemingly been none.

Relegation was confirmed before a final-day defeat at Crystal Palace and Moore has been entrusted with trying to return the club to the Premier League. The 44-year-old former defender has coached at West Brom for several years but this will be his first experience of full-time management.

West Brom considered other candidates, including the Brentford manager, Dean Smith.
