West Brom held initial discussions with the representatives of Slavisa Jokanovic about their vacant managerial role on Monday, Sky Sports News understands.

Jokanovic, who is the leading candidate to replace Darren Moore at the Sky Bet Championship side, has been without a club since being sacked by Fulham in November.

The 50-year-old has yet to meet directly with the West Brom board, with chief executive Mark Jenkins not due to return from China until Tuesday evening.

Jenkins travelled to China for talks with West Brom owner, Guochuan Lai, following the dismissal of Moore.
