Championship club Brentford reportedly want to appoint former Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham boss Martin Jol as their manager.

Championship outfit Brentford want to appoint former Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham boss Martin Jol as their manager next season, according to The Sun.

The British tabloid claims that the Dutchman “has emerged as the leading candidate to replace Mark Warburton”.

It has also been reported that Jol himself is open to moving to Griffin Park, but only “if the terms are right and the budget gives him a chance of promotion.”

Jol is currently without a managerial job, having been sacked by Fulham in December 2013 following a run of poor results.

The Dutchman was also fired by Tottenham in October 2007 after failing to guide the North London outfit to the Champions League.

Warburton is set to leave Brentford in the summer despite guiding the Bees to a top-six finish in the Championship this season.

Jol’s appointment could prove to be a good move by Brentford, who are an ambitious club and will be looking to make the Championship playoffs next season.

The 59-year-old knows English football inside out, and if he is given support in the transfer market, then he could prove to be a success.
