Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood is still in talks with Premier League about becoming their new manager.

According to reports emerging from the West Midlands, the two parties are expected to sit down for further talks this weekend as they try to reach agreement regarding an arrangement for the former Spurs manager to take over as the new permanent manager of the Baggies.

West Bromwich Albion are looking for their third manager in a season after getting rid of the services of Steve Clarke midway through the season and his replacement, Spanish boss Pepe Mel at the end of the season. The sacking of Clarke came as a surprise for many, especially after the performances of the club the previous season where they finished in the top ten and defeated the likes of Liverpool and drew 5-5 at home with champions Manchester United.

Sherwood was sacked by Spurs at the end of last season, just six months into an eighteen month deal after failing to take the club into the UEFA Champions League. The former Blackburn Rovers midfielder took over the reins at the club after the sacking of Andre Villas Boas midway through the season, under whom he was assistant boss.

Many believe his outspoken nature and attitude was too much for club chairman Daniel Levy to handle and in spite of several attempts to put a leash on him, the club couldn’t stop him from commenting on the way he wanted things to be.
It was reported last week that Sherwood had agreed personal terms with the Baggies but an appointment couldn’t be announced after he kept bargaining for more amenities for his support staff, something the club is not willing to give and that has held up the deal.

But reports also suggest an announcement could be made this week.
