Neil has now emerged as a potential contender but there has been no contact between West Brom and PNE.

The North End manager has a Championship promotion on his record having taken Norwich to the Premier League in 2015.

The 37-year-old then had a near miss with the Lilywhites last season as they finished seventh and a 10-game unbeaten run has seen them close in on the play-offs this time around ahead of the game at Middlesbrough on Wednesday night.
