Carlos Corberan signs new West Brom contract amid Leeds United links

West Bromwich Albion have confirmed that manager Carlos Corberan has signed a contract extension.

The new deal will see the 39-year-old remain at the Hawthorns until 2027.

Corberan was one of the names linked with the vacant managerial position at Leeds United.

The Elland Road club parted ways with Jesse Marsch yesterday after a poor run of form.

Corberan worked as Leeds first-team assistant manager and under-23s manager before leaving for Huddersfield Town in 2020.

The Spaniard knows the west Yorkshire club well having worked with Marcelo Bielsa, and the links were inevitable.

Corberan was also on Everton’s radar after Frank Lampard was sacked, but the Toffees have since appointed Sean Dyche.

West Brom have now moved swiftly to tie down their man. He joined them from Olympiacos in October 2022 and has led them to 10 victories out of 13 Championship games.

Corberan signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with the Baggies at the time.

He has now committed his long-term future to Albion, and Leeds will have to look elsewhere.

West Brom are sixth in the Championship after 29 games. Corberan will be keen to lead them to the promotion play-offs and secure promotion.

He helped Huddersfield Town reach the play-off final last term. Unfortunately, an own goal saw Nottingham Forest pip his side to promotion.

He is on course to reach another final and West Brom could not risk losing him. The Baggies are aiming to return to the Premier League after relegation at the end of 2020-21.
