Jol tells Ajax he wants to leave

Martin Jol Martin Jol has now formally informed Ajax he wants to succeed Roy Hodgson at Fulham after talks on Tuesday night.

Ajax have been fighting to keep Jol, trying to convince him that he will get money to spend on new players, and the Dutch club have refused to discuss compensation with Fulham.

It appeared the Fulham move was off on Tuesday morning when he was quoted in the Dutch press as saying he had agreed a deal in principle to stay at Ajax.

Jol, though, held private talks with Fulham officials on Tuesday night and dispelled all doubts about his willingness to quit Ajax. Ajax have now reluctantly agreed to meet Fulham chief executive Alistair Mackintosh, who remained in Amsterdam determined to land his target.

A Soccernet source said: "Alistair Mackintosh has been granted an appointment with Ajax, and they must know that their manager wishes to leave and that Fulham wish to offer a compensation package.

"As it stands, no one knows what Ajax's attitude will be when the meeting takes place, but it clear that Fulham want Jol as their manager."
