Fulham manager Martin Jol insists he has had no enquiries to take David Stockdale on loan - but is willing to listen to offers for the Fulham keeper.

The 27-year-old has made just 23 appearances for the Whites since his move from Darlington in 2008, and has been forced to play second fiddle to veteran Mark Schwarzer.

Stockdale has spent time out on loan at Rotherham, Leicester, Plymouth and most recently Ipswich, and goalkeeping coach Hans Segars told the Chronicle in the summer they were keen to send him out again to get regular football.

However, there have been no takers for the England international, while fellow shot-stopper Neil Etheridge has been given the green light to join League Two Bristol Rovers for a month.

But boss Jol says he would still be willing to think about allowing Stockdale out to get game time under his belt, with Csaba Somogyi able back-up at Craven Cottage.

"As you know it always depends on other clubs as well," the Dutchman told the Fulham Chronicle.

"If there's no interest and no other clubs come in [you can't do anything]. With Neil it was different.

"If there is a club coming in for Stockdale we can think about it, but at the moment there's no other club involved."

Stockdale signed a new long-term deal with Fulham last year that ties him to SW6 until 2015, but hasn't featured for the Whites since back in February.
