By | 1st December 2019

WATFORD are on the brink of firing Quique Sanchez Flores, with SunSport understanding Chris Hughton will take over.

Flores, who only took the job three months ago, is set to be dismissed but the Hornets will not confirm any changes until his successor is fully secured.

The club are set to hold a meeting later today at which the change of manager will be discussed.

After replacing Javi Garcia just four games into the season, Flores has failed to turn results around.

The latest setback was a 2-1 defeat to fellow relegation candidates Southampton that left the club rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table.
A change of manager means Watford will be onto their third of the season.

Former Brighton and Newcastle boss Hughton will have a major task to save Watford from the drop.

The club are currently six points from safety.

Other managers to have been mentioned as potential replacements have been ex-West Ham chief David Moyes and former Southampton manager Mark Hughs. Tony Pulis and Alan Pardew were also reportedly considered.
