The Daily Mirror are reporting that Fulham have joined the race to sign Birmingham City striker Cameron Jerome.

Stoke had agreed a £6m fee with the cash-strapped Blues for the 24 year-old forward but Jerome has failed to agree personal terms during protracted negotiations with the Potters. Other Premier League sides have now sort to capitalise on Stoke’s inability to finalise a deal with Jerome. Bolton had a £5m bid for Jerome rejected last month, but Birmingham are understood to be seeking to ease their financial worries after owner Carsten Yeung was arrested on money-laundering and fraud charges and see offloading some of their star names as the best way to do that.

Fulham are mentioned briefly at the end of the Mirror piece and Martin Jol is known to be considering supplementing his striking options ahead of the new season. Jerome scored ten league goals in 2009-10, but struggled to replicate that fine season as Blues struggled last term. The former Cardiff striker mustered just five goals in 42 appearances last term.
