Fulham caretaker boss Scott Parker is expected to hold further talks with the club over becoming permanent manager this week.
The former England international faced a baptism of fire when he was named Claudio Ranieri’s temporary successor in February, as he lost his first five matches in charge as Fulham’s relegation from the Premier League was confirmed.
However, since losing to Watford at the beginning of April, Parker has guided Fulham to three-successive victories, including Saturday’s 1-0 win over Cardiff at Craven Cottage.
Those victories have certainly strengthened Parker’s claims to be named Fulham’s manager on a permanent basis and the club’s vice-chairman Tony Khan, son of owner Shahid, is due to hold talks with the 38-year-old this week.

Parker has reportedly already identified potential transfer targets for the summer, while he has also had a say in mapping out the Cottagers pre-season programme.
A number of Fulham’s players have also publicly expressed their desire for Parker to be handed the managerial reigns on a permanent basis and it is believed Khan will consult with the squad before making a final decision.
