David Wagner: West Brom end pursuit of former Huddersfield and Schalke manager

David Wagner will not become West Brom’s new head coach after talks broke down.

After lengthy discussions, the German will instead become the next manager of BSC Young Boys in Switzerland, with his appointment expected to be confirmed before the weekend.

West Brom were impressed with Wagner but they wanted assurances he had the appetite for a promotion battle in the Championship.

However, following talks, it became increasingly clear he was keen at this stage of his career to remain close to his family in Germany.
