English Championship side West Brom have approached Hibs for permission to speak to manager Tony Mowbray.

West Brom have been in the hunt for a new manager since the departure of England legend Bryan Robson.

Mowbray recently signed a new rolling contract at Hibs and it remains to be seen if the West Brom job would interest him, after he turned down the Ipswich job, a club he loves and was at for NINE years, in favour of staying at Hibs and citing "Unfinished business".

Tony Mowbray would be a massive loss to the club and a massive blow to the Hibs support, after Mowbray guided the club to 3rd and back into
Europe in his first season. He then guided the club to a 4th place finish last season and has built the most exciting Hibs teams in decades.

A spokesman for West Brom said:

"Hibernian is one of a number of clubs from whom Albion has sought permission to speak to its manager regarding the managerial vacancy at The Hawthorns."
