Hughes left Fulham after agreeing terms

Mark Hughes resigned from Fulham - despite agreeing terms on a new deal, it has been revealed.

PA Sport says Hughes resigned as Fulham manager despite having agreed terms on a new contract with the club.

Hughes' decision to activate a break clause in the two-year deal he signed with Fulham last summer will fuel speculation of a move to managerless Aston Villa.

According to a source close to the club, owner Mohamed Al Fayed believed Hughes was positioning himself for a move while negotiating and finalising the terms of a new deal with Fulham.

Al Fayed is said to have grown "increasingly annoyed" with Hughes and did not oppose his request to leave at the end of June, having served a month's notice.
