JOL WANTS POG DEAL

Fulham manager Martin Jol has said that he is extremely hopeful that Fulham will be able to sign striker Pavel Pogrebnyak on a long-term deal shortly.

Pavel Pogrebnyak arrived at the club in the January transfer window and he will be a free transfer at the end of this season.

However, Fulham have not been able to secure the first option on the player when he becomes a free agent. As a result, he has been linked with a move to a number of top clubs across Europe after scoring a lot of goals in his first few months in England.

POGREBNYAK WANTS PERMANENT DEAL

Fulham striker Pavel Pogrebnyak has done little to suppress the speculation that he could sign with the London club on a permanent deal after moving into London on a permanent basis.

The striker, who is on a six-month loan deal from Germany, has impressed in the Fulham first-team this season.

There have been many reports that the Fulham will be interested in converting the deal into permanent one when the two clubs discuss a potential transfer once the season is over. Pavel Pogrebnyak struggled for goals during his time at Germany, but he has since been a revelation in England.

JOL BELIEVES IN TOP 6

Fulham manager Martin Jol is of the opinion that his club can finish in the top six this season.

Fulham struggled under Mark Hughes the previous season, and were once again expected to do the same under Martin Jol as well.

This is the first time Martin Jol has made his return to English football after being sacked by Tottenham a few seasons back. He impressed as the Tottenham manager and is once again continuing to do so as the Fulham manager.

JOL HAPPY WITH PAV

Fulham manager Martin Jol has said that he is extremely happy with the impact of the January signing Pavel Pogrebnyak on the team.

Pavel Pogrebnyak arrived at Fulham during the January transfer window, but he was not expected to be the first team player for Fulham.

CUP EXITS ARE GOOD SAYS DAVIES

Fulham have exited from both the FA Cup and the Europa league this season. However, Fulham midfielder Simon Davies has said that this is going to be beneficial for the club this season.

This is due to the fact that a club has to play a number of matches before achieving anything of significance in the Europa league.

STOKE MATCH IS MORE IMPORTANT

Fulham midfielder Dickson Etuhu has said that Fulham's match with Stoke City is much more important than the match with leaders Manchester City.

Fulham will be taking on these two clubs over the next few weeks. Martin Jol's have been unimpressive in the Premier league since the start of the season, but the midfielder believes that it will be about time Fulham star performing once again to their best in the league.

FULHAM WANT TO EXPAND

A number of clubs have been showing interest in increasing their stadium capacities and facilities.

Fulham have become the latest club to do so after they have filed an application to the local council for increasing the capacity of their stadium to 30,000.

Craven cottage is one of the oldest grounds in England and it currently has a capacity of around 26,000. However, Fulham have realised that their stature as one of those regular clubs in the Premier League demands a much bigger ground and they are planning to increase their capacity by around 4000.

JOL WANTS A STRIKER

Fulham manager Martin Jol has revealed that he will be looking to sign another striker in the January transfer window.

Martin Jol is a manager who has always favoured the lone striker in very much the same fashion as many other Dutch managers. Fulham also has three strikers at their disposal including England striker Bobby Zamora.

FULHAM CHASE HAMMER COLE

Fulham are reportedly interested in signing West Ham United striker Carlton Cole in order to ensure that they do not face the trouble of relegation struggles once again.

Fulham were extremely close to relegation a few seasons ago, but Roy Hodgson arrived at Craven cottage to save them, and led them on the road to mid-table security. Even though they have not been spectacular this season, Martin Jol has done a good job at Craven Cottage.

Defeat leaves Jol angry

Fulham manager Martin Jol was left “angry and disappointed” after his side were thrashed 5-0 by Manchester United.

The London club found themselves three goals down before half time and although they improved after the break and almost got on the scoresheet on a number of occasions, Jol was still deeply unhappy with what he saw.

“They had eight attempts on goal and scored five goals. They played around us on the flanks and we did not defend well. Nani scored a header which tells you all,” he said.
