Andre Villas-Boas could be set for a quick return to Premier League management, after West Brom approached him over the prospect of taking over from Steve Clarke, according to the Metro.

Villas-Boas was only sacked by Tottenham on Monday, just hours after Steve Clarke was shown the door at the Hawthorns, after a poor run of results.

But it seems the former Porto and Chelsea boss could not be out of the game for too long, with reports suggesting West Brom are keen to install him as their new manager.

Reports suggest Villas-Boas tops the Baggies managerial shortlist, which also includes Red Bull manager Ralf Rangnick, Real Madrid assistant Paul Clement, and former Liverpool and Valencia defender Mauricio Pellegrino.

It remains unclear as to whether Villas-Boas would be willing to make the step down to manage at the Hawthorns, having previously managed Porto, Chelsea and Tottenham, although the Portugese coach does remain desperate to prove himself in England.

The Baggies currently occupy 16th place in the Premier League, and sit just two points clear of the relegation zone.

If the deal were to go through, Villas-Boas could make his return to Tottenham as early as Boxing Day, when West Brom travel to White Hart Lane.
