Alan Pardew has been appointed as West Brom’s new manager on a two-and-a-half-year deal.
The Baggies dismissed Tony Pulis earlier this month after taking just 10 points from their opening 12 games of the Premier League season, with Gary Megson stepping in for last weekend’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham and Tuesday’s 2-2 stalemate with Newcastle United.
Pardew quickly emerged as the favourite to take over at The Hawthorns and stated on Sunday that the job was an “attractive” one.
And West Brom has now confirmed the appointment, with Pardew signing a deal until 2020.
John Carver, who worked with Pardew during his time at Newcastle, will join his backroom team, while Megson has left the club.
