Fulham in talks with Chris Wilder about ex-Sheff Utd boss becoming new manager after Scott Parker exit

CHRIS WILDER is talking to Fulham over succeeding Scott Parker as boss.

That's according to talkSPORT'S Alex Crook after ex-Sheffield United manager Wilder was also linked to West Brom.

Parker took over Fulham's Championship rivals Bournemouth on a three-year deal this week, just after exiting Craven Cottage by mutual consent.

Wilder was thought to be keen on finding a new Premier League job.

But Fulham have the resources to challenge seriously for promotion.

And it would be a fresh start for the boyhood Sheffield United fan.

He guided the Blades to the top flight and ninth place in their first Prem season, but quit in March this year with bottom-placed United doomed for the drop.

Swansea chief Steve Cooper has also been rated as a contender for Fulham, as well as for Crystal Palace.

But now Wilder looks in pole position for Craven Cottage.


And Palace are expected to confirm Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira as Roy Hodgson's successor within days.

The French World Cup winner, 45, is poised to agree a three-year contract.

The ex-New York City manager was sacked by Nice last December.
