Fulham are in talks with Inter Milan over a loan move for veteran midfielder Olivier Dacourt, according to Sky Sports News.

Roy Hodgson has already brought in promising youngster Giles Barnes from Derby and has now made an enquiry about securing Dacourt’s services.

The former Strasbourg, Everton, Lens, Leeds and Roma man is not in Jose Mourinho’s plans and has featured in just 15 minutes of Serie A action this season.

With Jimmy Bullard having been allowed to leave Craven Cottage for Hull City, Hodgson sees Dacourt as an ideal addition to his team’s engine room.

The 34-year-old former France international has commanded over £21million in transfer fees during his career.

Fulham are hoping to strike a deal with the Italian giants which would see Dacourt move on loan to West London for the remainder of the campaign before the transfer window closes at 5pm on Monday.
