Leeds United target Carlos Corberan has signed a new contract with West Brom.
The Baggies manager had been shortlisted by the Elland Road hierarchy as a potential replacement for the sacked Jesse Marsch, having previously worked as Marcelo Bielsa's assistant. But he's put pen to paper on an extension at the Hawthorns until the summer of 2027.
Corberan told the club website: "I have enjoyed my time at Albion, and I am pleased to have secured a contract extension. I would like to thank my staff, the players, and our fantastic supporters for their help in making my time here so positive."

Since taking charge at West Brom last October, the Spaniard has overseen a drastic upturn in their fortunes. Having been languishing in the Championship relegation zone when Steve Bruce was sacked, they now find themselves in play-off contention.
That fine run of form, which has seen him win 10 of his 13 league matches, had put him on the radar of former club Leeds. But they'll now have to look elsewhere for their next boss.
Leeds fans – who do you want in charge now? Let us know in the comments section.
Rayo Vallecano coach Andoni Iraola is believed to be high on their list, with sporting director Victor Orta a particular fan. He's lifted the Spanish side to fifth in La Liga.
Ex-Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl and Celtic's Ange Postecoglou have also been named in connection with the vacancy. And Norwegian coach Kjetil Knutsen, who currently manages FK Bodo/Glimt, is in the discussion too.
In the meantime, under-21 boss Michael Skubula will take charge when Leeds travel to face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Wednesday (February 8).
A 1-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest at the weekend was the final straw for Marsch, who oversaw training on Monday morning before being relieved of his duties by Orta and managing director Angus Kinnear.
