Preston North End manager Alex Neil linked with West Bromwich Albion job

Preston North End manager Alex Neil is now the third favourite to land the West Bromwich Albion job, according to SkyBet.

The 37-year-old Scot, who’s also been linked to the vacant Celtic hot-seat, is 7/1 to succeed Darren Moore at the Hawthorns.

A nominee for February’s manager of the month award, the young manager has been drawing plenty of attention due to his side’s current form which has seen North End go 10 games unbeaten in the Championship.

After taking over the Lilywhites in 2017, Neil came close to finishing in a play-off spot last season and his side are currently four points from the top six.
