Fulham hope to have their replacement for Scott Parker in place by the end of the week, according to BBC Sport’s Simon Stone.
The west London club confirmed yesterday that Parker had left the club by mutual consent, with the 41-year-old announced as the new Bournemouth boss not long after.
There are less than six weeks until the start of the Championship season, with Fulham set to face Middlesbrough in their first game since relegation from the Premier League, and it seems the club want to give their new boss as much time as possible to prepare.
Stone has reported that the Craven Cottage outfit hope to appoint their replacement for Parker by the end of the week.
Recent reports have indicated that Swansea City boss Steve Cooper is top of Fulham’s list of candidates while Chris Wilder and Eddie – who have both won promotion to the Premier League previously – remain out of a job.
It is understood, however, that Howe is not interested in taking charge and that it would cost £3.5 million in compensation to prize Cooper away from Swansea – a fee that Fulham are believed to be not keen to pay.
What was the score the last time Fulham played each of these 25 teams?
Fulham fans will love to hear that their club are hoping to have a replacement for Parker appointed by the end of the week.
The 41-year-old’s exit and move to Bournemouth has seemed on the cards for some time now but it has dragged on and now leaves the west London club managerless with less than six weeks to go until the start of the season.
Cooper appears the frontrunner and given his impressive two-year spell with the Swans would be a fantastic addition, though Wilder would also make a lot of sense.
