Babel in Cottage move link


Martin Jol is reportedly interested in bringing winger Ryan Babel back to the Premier League with Fulham from Dutch champions Ajax.

The Cottagers boss is aware that the 26-year-old Netherland international’s contract in Amsterdam will come to an end next month and he will then be available on a Bosman free transfer.

And, while Babel endured a disappointing spell at Liverpool where he scored 22 goals in 146 outings in all competitions following an £11.5million move from Ajax in summer 2007, Jol is still a big fan of his talents.

Babel has rediscovered the form which has seen him capped 43 times by his country while back in the Netherlands and it appears Jol will hope he would transfer that to England should he agree to make the switch to Craven Cottage in the upcoming transfer window.
