Jimmy Shan: West Brom confirm caretaker manager will remain in charge for rest of season

Caretaker manager Jimmy Shan will remain in charge of West Brom for the remainder of the season, the Championship club have confirmed.

The 40-year-old has overseen four wins in six games since being appointed caretaker when the Baggies sacked Darren Moore last month.

While there was never an official approach, Albion wanted Preston boss Alex Neil but the Scot signed a new three-year deal at Deepdale on Sunday.

Shan said: “I’m happy that we can now move forward with clear planning and direction for the remainder of the season.

“It won’t change the work ethic and application of the players and the staff but it enables us to crack on with a clear target in our sights.

“From a personal point of view there is huge, huge pride to be given the responsibility. For me it is a chance to see the journey through that began at the end of last season.
