Sky Bet suspend betting on West Brom boss with Darren Moore set for job

Sky Bet have suspended betting on the next West Brom manager with Darren Moore set to land the role on a permanent basis.

Moore was believed to be up against Brentford boss Dean Smith for the vacancy, but the Baggies look ready to gamble on their interim coach.

His odds fell to as short as 1/10 to be given the job, but the bookmaker have since moved to suspend betting.

44-year-old Moore took over in April following the sacking of Alan Pardew and helped overseeing a remarkable upturn in results, which included victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford.

He won three and drew two of his six matches to give West Brom hope of survival in the Premier League.

Relegation was confirmed before a final-day defeat at Crystal Palace but Moore looks set to be trusted to try and guide West Brom back to the top-flight.

The ex-defender has coached at West Brom since 2012 but this will be his first experience of full-time management.

Midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak recently took to social media to give his backing to Moore. He wrote: "I wish Darren Moore to keep the job because he deserves it.

"All the best and I hope you will come back to the premier league next season because here is your place. Come on you baggies."

Albion paid all of Krychowiak's £110,000-a-week wages for his season-long loan, although he has now returned to Paris Saint-Germain following the club's relegation.
