WEST BROM manager Carlos Corberan is reportedly “emerging as a potential candidate” for Leeds United should they sack Jesse Marsch.
The Elland Road side’s miserable run of form continued with a 1-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest today.
That left them without a win in the Premier League since November 5 and only out of the bottom three via goal difference.
Marsch has admitted that he understands the frustrations of supporters as the pressure mounts ahead of a double header with in-form Manchester United this week.
Now the Daily Mail are claiming Leeds “owner Andrea Radrizzani and Paraag Marathe will be the men that have the key say on Marsch’s future” over the coming days.
They state that Corberan, who previously worked for the club as coach under Marcelo Bielsa, “was admired” already.
The Spaniard, 39, then led Huddersfield to the Championship play-offs last term before a brief unsuccessful stint at Olympiacos.
However, his reputation has strengthened even further since returning to England to take charge of West Brom.
He has led the Baggies from the relegation zone to the play-offs and even had Everton interested last week before they opted for Sean Dyche.
West Brom want to tie him down to a new contract but a return to Leeds could prove too tempting to resist for Corberan.

Marsch replaced Bielsa at Leeds a year ago and helped them to secure Premier League survival.
But despite being backed in the transfer market, this season has proven to be another struggle.
Leeds have won just four games out of their 20 in the top-flight so far this term.
