Symons set for Wales role

Next Story

Kit Symons appears set to become part of Wales' manager Chris Coleman's backroom staff, although a deal has yet to be agreed with the Fulham academy coach.

Coleman, 41, was named as Gary Speed's successor last week and hinted that he would look to bring in his former Fulham and Wales team-mate, but added that he needed to speak to Speed's assistants Osian Roberts and Raymond Verheijen before making a decision over the composition of his coaching team.

But Press Association Sport understands that Symons is likely to join up with Coleman, and that the 40-year-old will combine his current club duties with his role in the national set-up.
