GARY ROWETT is set to replace Steve Bruce as West Brom boss.
The Millwall manager is keen to move back north after spending three years away from family in the capital.
lbion beat Bruce on Monday with the club finishing 22nd in the Championship – their lowest position in 20 years.
Rowett, 48, appeals to the Baggies because he can work on a budget in the Championship.
SunSport understand Millwall has yet to receive an official request from The Hawthorns.
The former Birmingham boss has guided the Lions to three first-half finishes.
His side currently sit 15th in the second tier with 17 points from 13 games this season.
That puts them six points clear of relegation-threatened West Brom.
Former Huddersfield boss Carlos Corberan is also a candidate for the Baggies appearance.
The 39-year-old Spaniard left the Terriers at the end of last season after guiding them to the play-off final.
