Former Tottenham head coach Tim Sherwood has confirmed that he turned down the opportunity to become the new boss of West Bromwich Albion, reports Sky Sports.

Sherwood took over as Tottenham head coach late last year following the departure of Andre Villas-Boas. He guided Spurs to a sixth place finish in the Premier League, securing qualification for the Europa League for the coming season.

However, Sherwood departed White Hart Lane at the end of the season, after the club exercised a “break clause” in his contract, which had another year left to run at the time.

Speculation was rife at the time that Sherwood would take the hot seat at West Brom that had been vacated by Pepe Mel at the end of last season. Sherwood has confirmed that despite several discussions and negotiations, no agreement could be reached with the Baggies.

“I think it’s a very good club. I had two very long meetings with them and they offered me the position there as manager,” he said. “We carried on the discussions, personal terms and a little bit about who they may be bringing in. In the end, we decided it wasn’t going to be right.”

Sherwood, a Premier League winner with Blackburn Rovers in his playing days, retains the desire to pursue his career in football management, though insists that the job will have to be the right one.

“There was nothing about and there are a lot of good managers looking for work at the moment and I am certainly one of them,” said Sherwood. “Nothing has cropped up at the moment which I feel is right for me.”
