No Allardyce dialogue over Baggies post
Sam Allardyce insists he would be interested in the West Brom manager's job but has had no contact with the club.
The 64-year-old has been out of work since leaving Everton at the end of last season but it seems as though he is keen to get back into management.
The former England coach has worked at West Ham, Sunderland, Crystal Palace and Goodison Park in recent years and it was thought he might have had enough after an unsuccessful spell with the Toffees.
The Baggies sacked Darren Moore and placed James Shan in temporary charge last month and there has been no word on a permanent successor.
Allardyce would certainly consider the role but confessed he has heard nothing.
"I've had no contact from West Brom, I can assure you of that," he told talkSport. "They've gone a long time without appointing a permanent manager, it's been a few weeks now.
"I was surprised with the position they're in that Darren lost his job. It's strange, they're fourth in the table and pushing for promotion.
"Do I want the job? It's not a question of whether I want it or not. It's a question of whether the club contact me personally or my agent and say what the position is, what they want me to do and what they expect me to do and what I think I'm capable of doing for West Brom if it gets to that stage.
"If everybody's comfortable with that then it may be a possibility."
