Jol is 3rd in 2 Days to be Ruled out of Villa Job After Joining Fulham

Martin Jol has reportedly agreed a 2-year contract to takeover the vacated Fulham manager’s post by Mark Hughes, meaning the London club have acted quickly to replace their departed man, a feat which Villa are failing to do. Yesterday, the then favourite for the job, Carlo Ancelotti revealed that he had not contact with the club, though sources strongly suggest otherwise, and the Italian claimed that he would be taking a year out of management. Later in the day Didier Deschamps, albeit a very long shot candidate for the Villa job, committed his future to Ligue 1 runners-up Marseille. The news that former Spurs boss Jol has now been made unavailable sees Villa’s options becoming increasingly limited, with fans least favourite Steve McLaren now a favourite with the bookies. Interestingly, Owen Coyle’s odds have shortened quite dramatically to make him second favourite at as little as 5/2 though sources in Bolton say no contact has been made. If we don’t act fast, McLaren is seeming more and more likely!
