Premier League - West Brom face fight for Hughton
Wed, 23 May 08:45:00 2012
West Brom have been warned to expect a tough stance from Birmingham should they press ahead with plans to make Chris Hughton their new manager.
But at that time Hughton was a free agent after being sacked by Newcastle two months earlier, and Birmingham are keen to retain his services.
A source close to City said: "Chris is very highly rated at Birmingham and has done a great job since taking over.
"Blues are planning for next season, want Chris to be part of those plans, and any approach would not be welcome."
