Gianfranco Zola reportedly emerges as a frontrunner for the vacant Fulham job.

Gianfranco Zola has reportedly emerged as a frontrunner to become the next Fulham boss.

Felix Magath was sacked from his post last week after taking the Cottagers to the foot of the Championship table.

According to The Mirror, Zola, who has been out work since leaving Watford last year, is high on the shortlist for the Londoners.

However, the likes of Chris Hughton, Tim Sherwood, Steve Clarke and current caretaker boss Kit Symons are also understood to be in the frame.

Meanwhile, Magath has claimed that he has been a victim of "character defamation" since leaving the club.
