West Bromwich Albion will have further talks with former Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic as they step up their efforts to replace sacked head coach Darren Moore.

However, it looks unlikely that they will have a new boss in place for Wednesday's game against Swansea.

Moore, 44, was dismissed following Saturday's draw with Ipswich Town.

Albion have made Jokanovic one of their prime candidates after guiding Watford and Fulham to the Premier League.

The 50-year-old, who was sacked by Fulham in November, worked with Albion's sporting director Luke Dowling during his spell as Watford boss in 2014-15.

The Baggies, who are fourth in the Championship, are continuing to talk with potential successors to Moore.

But it is understood former Huddersfield boss David Wagner will not be taking over as he wants to wait until the summer before assessing any job offers.

Former Swansea boss Carlos Carvalhal is also a potential candidate and is one of the men who made their interest known following Moore's dismissal.
