And following Alan Pardew’s departure from the Hawthorns earlier this week, McInnes was installed as one of the front-runners by various bookmakers across the country.
McInnes – who was West Brom captain for a spell during his playing days – is in the Aberdeen dugout for tonight’s Premiership match at Motherwell, and, of course, the West Brom link was put to him by journalists in the build-up to kick-off, as reported by the BBC’s Kenny Crawford:

It remains to be seen in McInnes will eventually be tempted south by the barrel-loads of cash on offer in the English leagues, but, for the time being at least, he certainly isn’t seeking any advances.
What do you think? Would he and West Brom make a good team?
