Fulham have rejected an approach from Southampton for manager Felix Magath.

The Mirror says Fulham face a fight to keep Magath after refusing Southampton permission to speak to him.

The 60-year-old German will have to walk out on the west London Championship club if he wants to hold talks with the managerless Saints about a swift return to the Premier League.

Southampton want to replace Mauricio Pochettino - who took over at Tottenham last month - by the end of next week.

They have already spoken to Feyenoord boss Ronald Koeman, too.
