Wolves’ relegation from The Premiership could cost them the services of Cameroon international goalkeeper Carlos Kameni because Fulham are now understood to be ready to offer the African a place among England’s elite.

Dave Jones’s bid to sign Le Havre’s shot-stopper collapsed last year when the player was not granted a work permit, but the player expressed a desire to maintain the links with England and earn a dream move.

“I was very disappointed I didn’t sign on in England because my mind was already in England,” Kameni said last October.

“Wolverhampton were very interested in starting a loan. Then, they made an offer but I can’t go to England at the moment.

“I hope it will change. I am trying to get French nationality. In this case, there won’t be any more problems for me to go to England.

“It’s my dream to play there.

“I have contacts with English clubs and they want to move as quick as possible.”

Fulham boss Chris Coleman is rumoured to have made contact with Kameni in a bid to bring the 20-year-old to West London.

Edwin van der Sar’s future at the club is still in doubt and the young keeper, who represented his country in this year’s African Cup of Nations, could be a shrewd capture for Coleman.
