It’s a Jolly good move for Kev

MARTIN JOL wants to make Kevin Nolan his first Fulham signing.

And the new Craven Cottage boss is set to rival West Ham for the unsettled Newcastle skipper.

The relegated Hammers failed with a £3million bid for Nolan, 28, who could leave Toon after turning down an extension to the two years he has left on his £40,000-a-week deal.

Newcastle want double that for the former Bolton star, who cost them £4m in 2009, and Jol is monitoring the situation after his Premier League return.

The Dutchman has thrashed out a £15m summer war chest with owner Mohamed Fayed after replacing Mark Hughes.

Jol is a long-term admirer of Nolan, and can offer the goal-scoring midfielder the lure of top-flight football.

The ex-Spurs manager is ready to test the Geordies with a bid which tops that tabled by Hammers boss Sam Allardyce - but still falls short of Toon's valuation of their 12-goal top scorer.

Fans' favourite John Pantsil has played his last game for Fulham, though.

The Ghanaian right-back, 29, is being released with his contract up at the end of this month. He has been told there is no place for him because Jol wants to free up wages to bring in fresh players.

Fulham have not given up hope of persuading Hungarian ace Zoltan Gera to stay despite interest from ex-boss Roy Hodgson at West Brom.

Jol is a good manager but i don't think he will do anything with Fulham, especially with a small war chest to work with.
I can't see Fulham doing much better than what they achieved this season and I think Kevin Nolan will see any club he goes to as a backward step.
Let's be honest. Fulham have a little bit of pulling power, basically because they're a London club.
