West Brom have appointed former West Ham United boss Slaven Bilic as their new head coach. 

The Croatian is now back in football management with West Brom after agreeing to a two-year deal with the Sky Bet Championship side.

“I’m delighted with this opportunity of course,” Bilic said.

“We want to improve, we want to improve on the pitch and Albion have convinced me they want to return to the Premier League. Albion have a short-term project and a long project and they do not clash.

“They wanted me to lead them, to help improve them. They made it clear they wanted me to be the one to lead them in this and I didn’t think twice once they had spoken to me."

The 50-year-old has been without a club for two years after he was sacked by West Ham United in November 2017.
