Danny Murphy says Fulham are close to deciding on their new manager.

The former Craven Cottage star is part of a five-man committee assessing suitable candidates for the vacant post and he has told talkSPORT they are making good progress.

Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, he said: “We are getting much closer.

“We have been working quite hard, having a couple of meetings, and for any fans out there listening, we are nearly there.”

Kit Symons is the frontrunner for the job having enjoyed a successful spell in caretaker charge.

Billy McKinlay, Chris Hughton and Gianfranco Zola have also been linked with the post.
