Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood could be set for a swift return to Premier League management.
BBC Sport reported on Tuesday that the 45-year-old was on West Bromwich Albion's six-man shortlist to replace Pepe Mel. The Birmingham Mail's Bill Howell went one further on Wednesday, writing that the ex-Tottenham boss will be appointed within 48 hours.
The BBC article states Sherwood's "record impressed West Brom, as did his work with young players while working as technical co-ordinator at White Hart Lane."
If the aforementioned reports prove accurate, it will be a big boost to Sherwood after his contentious last six months at Spurs.
The pressure to produce immediate results saw him judged harshly given he was coming in at the midway point of the campaign. It is easy to see how he might have caught the Baggies' attention, though. His overall work was solid, even if it did not live up to certain expectations from the Spurs supporters, and the club itself.
Even so, there are certain things Sherwood can learn from his experiences at Tottenham to improve as a manager.
