Town winger in Jol's sights

Ipswich Town's transfer-listed winger Jay Emmanuel-Thomas is a reported summer target of Fulham boss Martin Jol.

Tractor Boys chief Mick McCarthy revealed last month that the 22-year-old, who has scored eight goals in 70 games since joining the club from Arsenal and has a year remaining on his current deal, could leave on a free transfer as he looks to free up some space on the Portman Road wage bill for a summer squad rebuilding job.

It is being suggested that Jol will make a move to give Emmanuel-Thomas a chance to prove himself in the Premier League, with a reported Craven Cottage source claiming that the Dutch tactician has already discussed a summer transfer for the player.

The source was quoted in the East Anglian Daily Times as saying: "Fulham like the look of Jay and are considering making a move, although they would not be prepared to pay a fee.

"He has been in and out of the Ipswich team but, with the extra finances clubs like Fulham have from being in the Premier League, they would be prepared to take a chance on a player who they feel can turn a game."
