Premier League – Hodgson appointed West Brom boss
Hodgson takes over a side that have slipped into relegation trouble and sacked Roberto Di Matteo last Sunday.
West Brom are just one place outside the relegation zone in 17th spot, two points above bottom club West Ham.
The club had a good start to the season under Di Matteo following their promotion from the Championship last term.
However a run of 13 defeats in 18 matches in all competitions resulted in the Italian being relieved of his duties.
