Wing men on Jol's radar
Martin Jol has been linked to Tottenham winger David Bentley and Swansea's Scott Sinclair as he bids to further bolster Fulham's ranks.
The Cottagers chief got his team building job underway on Thursday when he signed Croatian forward Mladen Petric on a Bosman free transfer following his exit from German Bundesliga side Hamburg at the end of last season. Petric will help fill one of the gaps left by Andrew Johnson's departure to QPR on a free transfer and Pavel Pogrebnyak's decision to join Premier League new boys Reading. However, Jol is now aiming to strengthen his options on the wing with several names entering the fray as potential targets for the Dutch tactician. It seems a swoop for 27-year-old former England international, Bentley, could be on the cards after the player's move to America's MLS fell through. The player is working his way back from a knee injury picked, but could be available on loan or a cut-price deal after he fell out of favour at Tottenham. Swansea wing man, Sinclair, has also been linked to Fulham as he continues to stall over signing a new deal at the Liberty Stadium. The player only has 12 months remaining on his current contract and could be made available if he refuses to put pen-to-paper in the near future as the Swans will be keen to pick up a fee for his services. However Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins claims the delay in discussing terms was caused by the club's search for a new boss following the departure of Brendan Rodgers. Now that Michael Laudrup has been appointed talks are set to resume and Jenkins is hopeful of a successful outcome.
