Matt Jenkins returns to West Brom as new chief exec

Mark, who was previously CEO of the football club for 14 years, ten of which were spent in the Premier League, said: "There is much to do but for now the focus must exclusively be on the remaining games of this season".

Nevertheless, Pardew's job is safe at least for the time being, with the club instead directing their ire at Williams and Goodman, who were dismissed on Tuesday.

"There is much to do but for now the focus must exclusively be on the remaining games of this season".

The sackings were announced hours after West Brom lost 3-0 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

The Baggies have won just three of their 27 league games this term and Tony Pulis paid the price for their poor start to the season by losing his job in November.

"But I'm aware that while I'm joining one of the great, traditional clubs of English football, it is one determined to go forward in the Premier League".


Williams was appointed chairman of West Brom in 2016 when Chinese businessman Guochuan Lai, controlling shareholder of Yunyi Guokai (Shanghai) Sports Development Ltd, completed his takeover of the club.

But the expected recovery under Pardew hasn't materialised.

Alan Pardew will want to concentrate on trying to drag his team out of trouble before he considers the players that they will be looking at in the summer - but perhaps a recent report should alert him enough to put one player on his radar if they manage to pull off a great escape.

Albion, a Premier League side for the past eight years, return to action on Saturday with an FA Cup last-16 tie against Southampton.

They face a crunch clash against Huddersfield in their next Prem encounter in a fortnight.
