The door has been opened for Fulham goalkeeper David Stockdale to head to a Championship club on loan, with Leeds United at the front of the queue for his services.

Premiership new-boys Swansea saw a move for the 25-year-old rejected at the weekend, with Stockdale open to a switch to the Liberty Stadium.

But Cottagers chief Martin Jol has ruled out lending Stockdale - who has previously been called up to the full England national team - to a rival top-flight club because he can't insert a recall clause into the deal.

The chances of Stockdale moving to a second-tier club have increased with Jol snapping up Hungarian keeper Csaba Somogyi as number two to Mark Schwarzer.

Jol said: "There are quite a few parties interested. He's a good young keeper, but lacks experience which he will hopefully he will get.

"I would prefer to loan him out to a Championship club because we can include a 24-hour recall clause."
