Turkish newspaper Sabah claim Fenerbahce are in talks with West Bromwich Albion manager Slaven Bilic as they look to appoint a new manager.

Along with the Croatian coach, it’s reported two of Bilic’s compatriots, Nenad Bjelica and Zlatko Dalic, are also on the shortlist of Fenerbahce president Ali Koc.

The Turkish club parted ways with Ersun Yanal earlier this season after a poor run of form, and they are looking to appoint a new manager for next season, with the West Brom man said to be one of the options.

The Croatian boss is a popular figure in Turkey following his two-year spell at Besiktas between 2013 and 2015.

It’s reported the Fenerbahce board believe Bilic’s previous experience in the Turkish Super Lig will make him a suitable candidate for the role, whilst the former West Ham manager is said to be keen over a return to Turkey.

Bilic’s West Brom side were on their way to promotion to the Premier League, before the Championship stopped due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

His contract at the Hawthorns will expire at the end of next season.
