Alan Pardew has admitted his future as West Brom boss is uncertain following their 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Leicester City on Saturday.
Signs are looking ominous for the Baggies as they sit rock bottom of the Premier League table, with eight points between themselves and safety.
Following that defeat at The Hawthorns against the Foxes, Pardew knows his side are starring down the barrel of relegation and his future at this point is up in the air.
"Before you even ask will I speak to upstairs? Of course I will because it's getting difficult," said Pardew.
"I will still talk to them and get a feel for what they think because they might think a change is a better thing for the club.
"I'm going to have to sleep on this result and come up with how we're going to go forward. I want the best for West Brom."
Pardew will be hoping he is still at the helm for West Brom's next game in the Premier League as they prepare to make the trip to the south coast to face Bournemouth.
Games are running out for the Baggies to save their season and three points at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday is a must if they are realistically to avoid the drop.
West Brom are 4/1 to win, 14/5 to draw and 4/5 to lose to the Cherries.
