Former Watford boss Oscar Garcia is one of the names on Fulham's list as they seek to appoint their next head coach.

Nigel Pearson, Paul Lambert and Uwe Rosler are all under consideration by the Championship club as they seek to replace Kit Symons, who was sacked at the weekend following a 5-2 home defeat by Birmingham.

That result left Fulham 12th in the table, eight points adrift of a play-off spot, and persuaded the club's owners to act as they seek to propel the club back into the top flight, from which they were relegated at the end of the 2013-14 season.

Garcia has coached both Brighton and Watford, but his spell at Vicarage Road was cut short early in the 2014-15 campaign due to concerns about his health.

Brighton reached the play-offs under Garcia in 2014-15 but were defeated in the semi-finals by Derby, after which the Spaniard resigned.

While Garcia is not currently considered one of the favourites, his work at Brighton impressed many.

Garcia has had two spells in charge of Israeli club Maccabi Tel Aviv and has worked in the youth ranks at Barcelona.
