West Brom have had talks with Claudio Ranieri and Ray Wilkins about succeeding Roy Hodgson as manager.

Claudio Ranieri and Ray Wilkins in talks with West Brom

Former Chelsea boss Ranieri has met with Albion chairman Jeremy Peace and the club’s sporting and technical director Dan Ashworth.

The Baggies have also been in contact with Wilkins, who has had two spells as caretaker manager at Chelsea.

Birmingham boss Chris Hughton has been linked with the vacancy, which arose after Hodgson took charge of England.

Ranieri, 60, was in charge at Stamford Bridge between September 2000 and May 2004.

The Italian has since managed Valencia, Parma, Juventus, Roma and Inter Milan.

He is an attractive possibility for West Brom as he is currently a free agent.
