CHERRIES are waiting on the result of tonight's Championship play-off final before making an enquiry about Fulham boss Scott Parker, according to a report in The Sun.

Parker is set to lead the Cottagers out at Wembley tonight for their showdown with Brentford (7.45pm), looking to make an immediate return to the Premier League.

Cherries are on the hunt for a new manager after Eddie Howe left by mutual consent on Saturday, following their relegation to the Championship

And the report claims senior figures at Cherries are admirers of Parker, knowing him through their player and his brother-in-law Harry Arter, who is currently on loan at Fulham.

Parker is also said to have a "good relationship" with technical director Richard Hughes, who the Daily Echo understands is one of three men drawing up a list of candidates to replace Howe.

Meanwhile, Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson last night played down rumours linking him with the vacant Cherries post.
