As Roy Hodgson departs for his new Wembley role at the end of the season, West Brom will be looking for his successor.
The men behind the scenes at the Midlands club may already have an idea who the preferred choice is to replace the out going boss.
But they will have to choose wisely to continue the building job that Hodgson has begun.
Former Premier League bosses have been tipped to take over at The Hawthorns and Birmingham manager Chris Hughton has played down reports naming him as the leading candidate.
Bet365 have Hughton leading the way at the best price on the market at the minute with 11/8.
The 53-year-old insisted he is solely focused on trying to lead Birmingham back to the Premier League via the Championship play-offs but whether that deters Albion from making an approach remains to be seen.
Hughton began his managerial career with Newcastle and steered them to promotion two seasons ago, only to be sacked in December 2010, with the Geordies 11th in the Premier League table.
A man that is always touted whenever a Premiership job comes around is Alan Curbishley.
The Albion hierarchy are more likely to go for a man who has more recent success to his name but the former Charlton boss is never far away from the bookies favourite and the best price for him stands at 11/4 with SkyBet.
After a difficult time at Sunderland and proclaiming that Martin O’Neill was “getting credit” for the work he had done, Steve Bruce’s name will be thrown into the ring and why not?
After doing a good job with the likes of Birmingham and bringing international stars to Wigan, turning them into top Premier League players, then Bruce has a case for consideration.
He missed out on the Wolves job but could still feature as a man who can progress the midlands outfit into a top 10 side and he stands, best priced, at 10/1 with Stan James.
