Fulham boss Chris Coleman is understood to have joined the chase for in-demand Ajax midfielder Steven Pienaar.

The South Africa international looks set to leave the Dutch side in a cut-price deal after refusing to extend his current contractl beyond the end of the season.

The 23-year-old is being trailed by clubs throughout Europe, including Liverpool, Celtic and Arsenal.

Manchester City are also in the running to sign Pienaar after failing with a summer move for the versatile midfielder.

The player is said to favour a move to England as he is keen to test himself in the Premiership after becoming disillusioned with life at the Amsterdam ArenA.

Ajax have made a very disappointing start to the current campaign and are currently 13 points behind leaders PSV Eindhoven after just 11 games of the Dutch League programme.
