Jol reveals transfer ambition
Fulham boss Martin Jol is expecting to be busy in the January transfer window after seeing key players leave them at the end of August.
The double departure of Moussa Dembele and Clint Dempsey to Tottenham has left the Cottagers with money in the bank, but light in terms of numbers on the training ground.
Jol couldn't get the personnel in that he wanted to replace the duo due to a lack of time, and has since been forced to top up his squad with moves for free agents.
The Dutchman has been particularly concerned about his lack of options in midfield, with injuries to Simon Davies and Mahamadou Diarra compounding the situation.
He also lost Danny Murphy earlier in the summer to Blackburn, prompting his recent move for the club-less Giorgos Karagounis to increase competition for places.
However, the Cottagers boss is not done with his recruitment plans for the season and he is confident that chairman Mohamed Al Fayed will give him the chance to reinvest some of the £22m they made in the summer.
Jol said: "He [Al Fayed] said before the season you can spend the same amount as last year and we sold for over £30million and only bought for £8m.
"So I am 100 per cent certain he knows there is a lot in the kitty."
