WANDERERS have agreed terms with Crystal Palace to bring development coach Jamie Fullarton to the Reebok.

The former Scotland Under-21 international is the latest name to follow Dougie Freedman from Selhurst Park, after the earlier appointments of assistant boss Lennie Lawrence and first-team coach Curtis Fleming.

Palace goalkeeping coach Lee Turner has also been offered a role in the Whites’ new-look coaching set-up and his appointment could be confirmed by the end of the week.

Fullarton has also accepted an offer, having been taken to Selhurst Park by Freedman after a spell in charge of the youth team at Bristol Rovers.

The 37-year-old played one game on loan with Wanderers from Crystal Palace in the late 1990s and also had spells with Brentford and Southend.

It is expected the new appointments will mean that current goalkeeping coach Phil Hughes and development coach John Henry will leave the Reebok.

The pair were both brought in by Owen Coyle soon after his arrival in January, 2010.

Sources in London also claim Wanderers made an offer to Palace’s fitness coach Scott Guyett but that the Australian has decided to stay on with the London club after being given assurances over his role by new Eagles boss Ian Holloway.
