Rumours linking Chris Hughton with the vacant Fulham job begin to heat up.

Chris Hughton could be the frontrunner for the Fulham job following reports that he recently held "positive talks" with the club.

The former Norwich City boss is keen on the role but faces competition from Gianfranco Zola, Tim Sherwood, Steve Clarke and caretaker manager Kit Symons, according to The Mirror.

Fulham are seeking a new head coach after sacking Felix Magath following a winless start to the current campaign, the club's third managerial casualty in 12 months.

Hughton has been out of work since his dismissal as Norwich boss last April, and he is understood to be eager to return to management.
