West Bromwich Albion announced their new boss on Wednesday afternoon, following the recent sacking of Tony Pulis.
The English club has appointed Alan Pardew as their new manager, with the former West Ham United, Newcastle United and Crystal Palace boss signing a two-and-a-half-year contract.
Pardew, who was the Premier League manager of the year in 2012, has spoken about how he is feeling ahead of his new job.
"I'm thrilled with the opportunity Albion have provided and looking forward to getting to work with what I consider to be a talented group of players," he told the club's official website.
"The immediate challenge will be to get the results we need to pull ourselves up the table. But I'm aware that while I'm joining one of the great, traditional clubs of English football, it is one determined to go forward in the Premier League.
"It's an exciting opportunity to play a part in that ambition."
West Brom sacked Pulis last week after he won just two of his last 21 games in charge of the club.
