Edwin van der Sar’s agent has denied that the Dutchman is to decide his future by the end of this month.

Rob Jansen was quoted as saying that Fulham had until the end of October to secure his services.

However, Jansen denies giving an such ultimatum to The Cottages.

“That is absolute nonsense, I have not spoken to anyone about that,” Jansen said.

“We are just waiting to see what happens at the moment, but we have not really thought about it at this point.”

Van der Sar is one of the many goalkeepers to be linked to Manchester United – who seem to be back in the mark for a new number one.

Jansen, though, also denied knowing anything about United and his client, insisting: “There is nothing in that whatsoever.

“We have not heard anything and this is how it is, Edwin is happy but we have not talked with anyone.”
