Andy Johnson could be bound for the Baggies

Andy Johnson is the latest Fulham player to be linked with Roy Hodgson at West Brom, if The People is to be believed. Johnson has been mooted as a possible replacement for Baggies striker Peter Odemwingie, reportedly the target of Italian club Juventus.

Johnson has dropped down the selection pecking order since Fulham's injury woes have eased and he wasn't included on the bench at Old Trafford. The 30-year-old might well be deemed to be surplus to requirements at Craven Cottage come the end of the season, so the possibility of linking up with former boss Hodgson at the Hawthorns doesn't seem all that outlandish. The People suggests a price tag in the region of £3 million.

If it is to eventuate, it's safe to say the move can't be as big a disaster as the last time Hodgson raided Fulham's squad to plug a gap at a new club.

Aside from the (mostly depressing) match reports from United, the only other Fulham story doing the rounds today is yet more speculation about the future of Mark Hughes.

Martin Jol was linked with the post before Hughes was appointed last summer and the former Ajax boss is supposedly in the frame again, if the option for a second year in Sparky's contract isn't taken up.

Keep in mind that this comes from the Daily Mail: in December they suggested Maradona was about to replace Hughes during Fulham's brief flirtation with the relegation zone.
