Fulham have agreed compensation with Maccabi Tel Aviv over making Slavisa Jokanovic the London club’s new boss, according to a report.
It is understood that Fulham have been in talks with Jokanovic about taking over at the club for the past few days. With around £250,000 compensation now having been agreed with Tel Aviv, the deal looks set to go ahead.
Fulham have been without a manager since they sacked Kit Symons in early November so have taken their time in appointing a new man. Several names have been linked with the job, such as Nigel Pearson and Paul Lambert, but moves for most failed to materialise.
It now looks as if Fulham have finally got their man however, after nearly two months of looking. Jokanovic has been identified as the man with the ability to take Fulham back up to the Premier League. This is in part due to his achievement with Watford last season, when he took the club up.
