Fulham set to miss out on Birmingham target Hughton

Fulham are set to miss out on Chris Hughton.

The Sunday Mirror says Birmingham City's ­acting chairman Peter ­Pannu will advise owner Carson Yeung to appoint former ­Newcastle United boss Hughton.

Hughton, who has ruled out a move to Fulham as Martin Jol's number two, is also the supporters' first choice to succeed Alex McLeish at St Andrews ­after he terminated his contract and took over Midlands' rivals ­Aston Villa.

Local and on-line polls have Hughton way ahead of his competitors for the post.
