West Bromwich Albion have appointed Slaven Bilic as their new head coach on a two-year contract.

Bilic, 50, has not managed in England since being dismissed by West Ham in 2017, and he has agreed a two-year contract at The Hawthorns.

He succeeds Darren Moore, who was sacked in March with Albion fourth in the Championship table.

Coach Jimmy Shan led the Baggies to the play-offs, but they were beaten by Aston Villa in the semi-finals.

“From the moment we spoke to Slaven, we were struck by his enthusiasm and excitement about this challenge,” Baggies technical director Luke Dowling told the club website.

“He is determined to get back to the Premier League and believes passionately that he can do that with Albion.

“We believe he is a great ‘fit’ for us – his presence, experience and management qualities are just what we need.”
