    Moore celebrated his manager of the month award for April with dozens of members of club staff

    Darren Moore is set to be confirmed as relegated West Brom’s new manager.

    The former Baggies defender, 44, led them on an unbeaten run in April as caretaker manager with three wins and two draws after replacing Alan Pardew.

    But he was unable to save Albion, who were bottom of the Premier League table and 10 points adrift when he took over.

    Baggies’ owner Guochuan Lai, chief executive Mark Jenkins and technical director Giuliano Terraneo agreed the appointment at a meeting this week.

    Moore played for West Brom from 2001 until 2006, twice helping them to promotion to the Premier League.

    After succeeding Pardew he guided Albion to 1-0 victories away at Manchester United and Newcastle, a home win over Tottenham and a draw against Liverpool.

    He accrued 11 points from the 18 available after being named as caretaker manager and reeled in a 10-point gap to five points.

    Once confirmed in the role, Moore will set about rebuilding a squad that is likely to lose a number of key players this summer, with the defender Jonny Evans and striker Salomon Rondon two of the players who can leave for cut price fees.

    In addition, Gareth McAuley, James Morrison and Boaz Myhill are all out of contract at the end of this season while Claudio Yacob has the option to extend for a further year.
