Hull are keen to name Chris Coleman as their new boss despite Gianfranco Zola being the hot favourite to take charge, reports claim.
Zola is the favourite with most bookmakers to replace Steve Bruce at KCOM Stadium, with reports claiming that an approach has been made for the former West Ham United and Watford boss.
However, it is now claimed that Wales boss Coleman is the Hull board’s preferred choice and they would like him in the hot seat by the end of the week.
That could be easier said than done following Coleman’s heroics at Euro 2016, where he helped guide Wales to the semi-finals, before they lost to France.
It would take something just as miraculous to keep Hull in the Premier League, so it is easy to see why Coleman has emerged as a target.
Coleman only penned a new two-year deal in May and following the tournament he spoke of his desire to lead Wales to the next World Cup in two years time.
Whether Hull can change his mind remains to be seen, but reports are rife that the Tigers will make an approach this week.
