West Brom boss Pepe Mel admits he may not remain at the club beyond this season with his current deal set to expire in the summer.

Mel joined the Baggies in January following the dismissal of Steve Clarke, who struggled to build on the success of last season.

The Spaniard had been out of work for a month after he was relieved of his duties with Real Betis, who sat rock bottom of La Liga. The 51-year-old was handed an 18-month contract at the Hawthorns with the aim of trying to help them beat the drop this term.

West Brom, who are priced at 23.50 to be relegated, can secure their safety in the top flight with one more win from their remaining three games and Mel admits that talks over his future will begin when they play the final game of the campaign.

The Midlands outfit travel to the Emirates to take on Arsenal on Sunday and Mel insists that is his main focus for the time being.

Mel said: “I will have a meeting with West Brom after the season but the next important thing is Arsenal on Sunday.

“Sorry, but I only want to talk about our remaining matches against Arsenal, Sunderland and Stoke City.

“Of course we can bring the talks forward when we are safe. We can talk about the situation on Monday if we are safe.”
