Default WBA hold more talks with Ranieri

Baggies currently searching for Roy Hodgson's replacement
Chris Hughton also in line for manager's post at Hawthorns

West Bromwich Albion have held talks with the former Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri about becoming Roy Hodgson's successor at the Hawthorns.

Albion made initial contact with Ranieri, who is currently unemployed, two weeks ago and followed up their interest by holding a second round of talks with the Italian in London on Thursday.

Ranieri met the West Brom chairman, Jeremy Peace, and the club's sporting and technical director, Dan Ashworth. However, sources close to Albion stress the additional talks do not mean Ranieri will be automatically offered the post, which was made vacant after Hodgson was appointed as England's head coach.

It is understood the Baggies have also made contact with the former Chelsea and Manchester United midfielder Ray Wilkins. But the Birmingham City manager, Chris Hughton, remains high on the list of the candidates who appeal to Peace although no formal approach has yet been made to Blues.

Hughton came close to replacing Roberto Di Matteo 15 months ago after being interviewed by Albion before Hodgson took up the post.
