Fulham boss Chris Coleman is reported to be making a transfer bid for PSV Eindhoven midfielder Mika Vayrynen.

The Cottagers are considering the Finland international for the January market according to the Daily Express.

There have also been rumours in recent days Sfulham striker Heidar Helguson is upset with being on the sidelines so much. He has made just 4 starts this season with Boss Coleman perservering with his lone striker format.

However the report linking Mika Vayrynen to Craven Cottage has to be conidered against the recent statement by PSV Eindhoven coach Ronald Koeman that Vayrynen is no longer for sale.

The Finland midfielder looked set to join Spanish side Celta Vigo in the summer transfer window after a season disrupted by an ankle injury, but the move fell through at the last minute.

Now Koeman, who has fielded the 24-year-old only sporadically this season, wants him to stay at the Philips Stadion.

“If it’s up to me, Mika can no longer leave PSV,” Koeman told AD Sportwereld. “If you see him when he plays or comes on as a substitute, he functions much better than he did a while back.

“He was injured for a long time last season and now he is much fitter. That plays a role too.”

Koeman confirmed he was planning keep his squad together through the winter transfer window.

“It’s not my intention to let someone go from the group of players which we use now in the winter break,” he said.
