Hughes quits as Fulham boss

2:02 pm on 4 June 2011

Mark Hughes has resigned as manager of Fulham and immediately brushed off speculation linking him with the vacancy at English Premier League football rivals Aston Villa.

Birmingham club Villa are without a manager after former France boss Gerard Houllier stepped down following a heart scare.

Fulham finished eighth, one place above Villa, last season and Hughes was immediately touted as the man to replace Houllier.

However, Hughes insists he hasn't been approached by any other club.
