Fulham boss Roy Hodgson is bemused by the ongoing speculation linking Jimmy Bullard with a move away from Craven Cottage.

Bolton are the latest club to have been linked with the popular midfielder.

But Hodgson insists there has been no approach for Bullard, who recently had a request to extend his contract rejected by Fulham’s board.

“Neither myself nor (chief executive) Alistair Mackintosh have recently been contacted by any club regarding Jimmy Bullard,” he said. “The only club I know that have made any contact, at least with myself, was Wigan – maybe five weeks ago.”
