Fulham are ready to end their interest in Cameron Jerome and move on to other targets, according to a Sky Sports News report this afternoon.

Birmingham rejected Fulham’s initial offer for Jerome – believed to be between £2m and £3m – and are seeking substantially more for the 24 year-old striker as they look to rebuild their squad and bolster their financial promotion following relegation from the Premier League. That news means that manager Martin Jol is ready to consider alternative targets as he seeks to supplement his forward line for the forthcoming season.

Fulham have been heavily linked with Mexican international Aldo De Nigris, but Jol is also thought to scouring Europe for potential strikers.
