Kit Symons is set to relinquish his role as Welsh assistant manager in order to fully concentrate on getting Fulham out of the Championship.

The Cottagers’ boss has been number two to Chris Coleman since 2012 and had originally been given permission by Shahid Khan to continue working with the Welsh national side. Leaving that job would be a wrench, especially with Wales on the brink of qualifying for Euro 2016, but Symons says he wants to put Fulham first.

“I’ll do what’s right for Fulham,” he said. “They’re my club and they pay my wages. Quite often, I’m only away with Wales for a couple of days, but I’ll assess. The build-up to Wales games doesn’t impact, but situations change. I’ll get the balance right, and there’s no Welsh game until June. Then l’ll talk with the chairman.”
