The Daily Mail reports that Sam Allardyce is in the frame to take over at the Hawthorns, with the paper reporting the former England and West Ham boss is "featuring highly" in discussions about succeeding Pulis.

Pulis departs after nearly three years at West Brom, having previously managed Stoke and Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

Garcia guided Brighton to the Sky Bet Championship play-offs in 2014 before leaving the Seagulls and lasted just 27 days at Watford later that year, stepping down because of ill health.

Garcia also won the Austrian Bundesliga twice and two Austrian Cups during a two-year spell with Red Bull Salzburg.

On Monday, Megson was appointed West Brom's caretaker boss after Tony Pulis was sacked.

According to the Mirror, fans spotted at least two players sitting in executive boxes joining in with the chants.

What these revelations show is that despite Pulis' claims that the dressing room was supporting of his methods, he was clearly fighting a losing battle for a while.

Pulis issued a statement via the League Managers' Association after his sacking, in which he revealed that his brief had always been to make the club financially stable in order to improve results.

"They're not as happy as the ones that are being picked".

"No one is happy about the situation we're in". McInnes played 88 times for the Baggies between 2000 and 2003 and helped the club to promotion to the Premier League.

"It's not nice talking about what we've talked about in this last 48 hours".
