Slaven Bilic has been confirmed as the new manager of West Bromwich Albion.

The 50-year-old former West Ham boss has agreed a two year contract and succeeds caretaker Jimmy Shan.

It took two rounds of talks with the former Hammers and Croatia boss but both parties have made up their minds.  

Slaven Bilic is set to be announced as the new West Ham manager on Thursday

He has seen off competition from Chris Hughton, who was sacked by Brighton at the end of last season. 

Former Wolfsburg manager Bruno Labbadia was also interviewed but missed out on the role. 

And on West Brom breaking the news, the former Croatia and West Ham boss said: 'I’m delighted with this opportunity of course.

'We want to improve, we want to improve on the pitch and Albion have convinced me they want to return to the Premier League. 

Chris Hughton had been in the running but was pipped to the job by the former Croatia boss

'Albion have a short-term project and a long project and they do not clash.

'They wanted me to lead them, to help improve them. They made it clear they wanted me to be the one to lead them in this and I didn’t think twice once they had spoken to me.'

Bilic was West Ham boss between 2015-17 before working at Al-Ittihad in Saudi Arabia last season.
