Marco Silva has agreed a three-year deal to become Fulham’s new manager and is expected to be officially announced as the club’s new boss later today, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The Championship club concluded positive talks with the Portuguese coach, who has been out of football since being sacked by Everton in December 2019, earlier this week. Silva will shortly succeed Scott Parker, who left for Bournemouth on Monday, and will include the former Fulham winger Luis Boa Morte as part of his coaching staff.

Silva, who has rebuffed significant interest from Turkey and Russia to take the Craven Cottage job, has previously managed Hull, Watford and Everton in England but has no experience of managing in the Championship.
