Martin Jol wants the job at Fulham.
The Sunday Mirror says the Dutchman, out of work since resigning as boss of Dutch giants Ajax in December, had been first choice to take over at Craven Cottage last summer when Roy Hodgson moved to Liverpool.
In fact, he had agreed terms before his bosses in Amsterdam pulled the plug, forcing owner Mohamed Al Fayed to move for Hughes.
With the Welshman now out of the picture after his resignation on Thursday, Al Fayed wants to hire Jol at the second time of asking.
And it's understood former Spurs boss Jol is interested in heading to south-west London.
