Bilic rejects West Brom job offer

Former West Ham united boss Slaven Bilic has rejected the chance to speak to West Brom about their vacant manager's position.

Mr Bilic was sacked by the Hammers on 6 November and Premier League rivals West Brom dismissed Tony Pulis on Monday.
It is understood the 49-year-old Croat wants to take a break from the game.
Gary Megson is in temporary charge at The Hawthorns, with ex-Crystal Palace and Newcastle boss Alan Pardew odds-on favourite to get the permanent job.
Megson, who spent four and a half years in charge of the Baggies from March 2000, is set to take charge of Saturday's league game against Tottenham at Wembley.
His last managerial role was at Sheffield Wednesday, who sacked him in February 2012.
