Fulham boss Martin Jol expects a big January transfer kitty

The Dutch manager has overseen the departure of a number of key players, but hopes chairman Mohamed Al-Fayed will be prepared to reinvest that money in the next window

The Cottagers currently sit in ninth place in the Premier League, and the Dutch manager believes funds will be provided by Mohamed Al-Fayed should he request them.

"He [Al-Fayed] said before the season you can spend the same amount as last year and we sold for over £30 million and only bought for £8m," Jol told London24.

"So I am 100 per cent certain he knows there is a lot in the kitty."

Fulham sold Mousa Dembele and Clint Dempsey for over £20m during the final days of the summer window, leaving Jol little time to reinvest.

The west London club also made a significant profit on Bobby Zamora last January, and released a number of high earners, such as Danny Murphy and Pavel Pogbrebnyak, off the wage bill during the off-season.

As such, Jol is hopeful that owner Al-Fayed will use those funds to provide a significant transfer budget to spend in the coming transfer window.
