Fulham are considering Paul Lambert, Nigel Pearson and Uwe Rosler as potential successors to Kit Symons, according to Sky Sports.

Symons was dismissed after Fulham’s 5-2 defeat to Birmingham at Craven Cottage, which leaves them in 12th place in the Championship. Alan Curbishley is taking training at Motspur Park but Fulham hope to make an appointment ahead of their next game.

Fulham’s chief football officer Mike Rigg is leading the search for a new manager – although no approaches have yet been made to potential new bosses.

Lambert was sacked by Aston Villa in February this year and replaced by Tim Sherwood. Lambert has extensive experience of managing in the Championship with Norwich City, guiding them to promotion to the Premier League in 2011.

Rosler was sacked by Leeds United last month, and has had spells with Brentford and Wigan Athletic.

Pearson guided Leicester City into the Premier League and although they survived in the top flight last season he was sacked in June.
