Roy Hodgson has confirmed that Bobby Zamora will be staying at Fulham after rejecting a move to Hull City.
The former West Ham striker scored twice in a 3-3 draw at Peterborough and it appeared that might be his last contribution in a Fulham shirt after the Whites agreed a £5m for his services with Hull. But Zamora has decided to remain in west London and Hodgson is ‘delighted’.
The Fulham boss said: “We allowed Bobby to talk to Hull but he wants to stay with us and I’m delighted. He didn’t score many goals last season but he will this time because he is a very good technician.”
Hodgson also confirmed that Fulham were interested in concluding a £12m deal for Portsmouth’s England international forward Peter Crouch.
“This will not end our pursuit of Crouch, he said. “We have spoken to Portsmouth and to the player’s agent about wages and I am hopeful something will happen.”
