Kit Symons will remain Fulham’s manager next season, according to a Sky Sports News report.

There had been fevered speculation that Symons could pay the price for a poor end to the season as Fulham finished seventeenth in the Championship, barely surviving relegation at the end of their first season out of the top flight. But club sources have told Sky that Symons will remain in charge at Craven Cottage with the Fulham hierarchy impressed by the way he navigated the first team to safety following the disastrous start under Felix Magath.
