Poyet tipped to replace Martin Jol

Gus Poyet Brighton ManagerFulham are reportedly considering replacing manager Martin Jol with Brighton boss Gus Poyet in the summer.

The Telegraph have reported that the Cottagers board are “seriously concerned at their dismal end to the season” and are considering replacing Dutchman Jol at the end of the current campaign.

The Cottagers have suffered five successive defeats and this is believed to have alarmed the Fulham hierarchy, who will reportedly review Jol’s position following their final Premier League fixture at Swansea this weekend.

Poyet indicated that he may leave Brighton in the summer after their play-off semi-final defeat to Crystal Palace earlier this week due to concerns over the club’s budget, and Fulham have now been linked with a move for the 45-year-old Uruguayan.

The former Chelsea and Spurs midfielder has impressed at the Seagulls over the course of his three-and-a-half years in charge, guiding the club to the League One title and successfully overseeing the move to the Amex Stadium in 2011.

However, Poyet is tied down to a long-term deal at Brighton and Fulham may be put off by the reported £2.5million compensation they will have to pay the Championship side to secure the manager’s services.
