Alan Curbishley Fulham eye Eriksson, Hughes and Curbishley Sven-Goran Eriksson, Mark Hughes and Alan Curbishley are on the Fulham shortlist to replace Roy Hodgson.

But they are not alone, as Soccernet has been informed that the decision on Hodgson's successor has not been taken as Fulham are waiting for Liverpool to announce the appointment.

Compensation of £2.5 million has been agreed between Liverpool and Fulham and the Sven-Goran Eriksson Wednesday night, in advance of his unveiling at Anfield on Thursday.

An insider involved in the managerial comings and goings at Craven Cottage told Soccernet: "Roy has not resigned, yet, as of this evening [Wednesday], although it could happen tonight or tomorrow morning as Liverpool's first day back for training is Thursday.

"Everyone in the media has assumed it would have been announced by now, and I am sure it's not far away. There has been speculation that Roy might have been interested in the England job, and of course he might well have been, but it looks like the FA are keeping Fabio Capello in any case.

Mark Hughes "Compensation has been agreed but out of respect to Roy the process has not began to replace him. The chairman will have a major input into who he will want as manager, and it is fair to assume that Sven, Mark Hughes, and Curbishley will be under consideration.

"But there are one or two other names who have come to our attention and they will also be considered."

It is understood that the three leading contenders have all let it be known that they will take the Fulham job if it is offered to them.

There is a vote on the home page which includes Danny Murphy but if there is someone else out there that you think should be Fulham manager post the name on the message board by clicking here.
